Humberside Police - Musicport 2010
Musicport has been working with Music4U - the Humber Region Action Zone - for the 3rd year running to provide music making opportunities for young people in the Humber Region. Supported by Humberside Police, this initiative provides an opportunity for young people to showcase their work as part of Musicport 2010.
This year a group of 35 GCSE and 'A' level students from Headlands School and Community Science College in Bridlington worked with musicians from SAMAY whose musical style mixes Indian, samba, flamenco, jazz and funk. They will work together along with support from Leeds College of Music students, during the week leading up to Musicport and will rehearse three songs, which was performed on the main stage on Friday 22 October at 7pm to a receptive crowd. This first, for the first time, the school worked with its media students to capture the rehearsal process and the final performance. This can be seen on the Music4U blog and the 'Not Just Noise' website
There was also an opportunity to hear world music performances from local community groups throughout the day on Saturday 23 October which included 'Steel the Rhythm' Steel Pan group from North East Lincolnshire, Escola De Chaos, samba procession group from Goole and a West African drumming and singing group from Hull..

This is one of a number of successful initiatives run in conjunction with Humberside Police aimed at reducing anti-social behaviour in the community.
