YOUNG artists from more than 70 schools across Worcestershire will showcase a variety of visual art performances to the county.
Voices and Visions is an annual showcase of work from primary and secondary schools celebrating their creative talent and now, in its 18th year, the schools will be exhibiting visual art to the theme of Your Voice, Your Visions until Tuesday, July 12.
After performances at Worcester Cathedral and The Hive, the BBC Ten Pieces Showcase is to be held at Pershore’s Number 8 Community Arts Centre on Wednesday (July 6) at 7.30pm.
Worcestershire high schools have collaborated with visiting artists to respond creatively to the BBC Ten Pieces project and will showcase their performances during this evening event.
Steve Wilson, County Arts Officer, said: “A massive thanks to all those schools, teachers and arts organisations for being involved. To get this amount of participation from schools is a fantastic achievement and speaks volumes of the way in which arts are valued within the county.”
Trevor Jones of Worcestershire Youth Music said: “Worcestershire Youth Music is pleased to be working with Worcestershire Arts Service and Worcestershire schools to stage this year’s Voices and Visions Festival.
“Our partnership has resulted in many more exciting creative experiences for the children and young people across the county and gives us a wonderful opportunity to showcase and celebrate their impressive talents.”
