soundLincs B15

One of our National portfolio organisations is on the hunt to find 1,500 musicians to help celebrate its 15th anniversary by breaking a Guinness world record.  

For 15 years soundLINCS has worked with more than half a million people across the East Midlands, inspiring a love of music through workshops and residencies to suit all musical tastes, including, African drumming workshops, samba workshops, rock & pop, singing and vocals, DJing, music production and technology.

To celebrate their 15th anniversary, soundLINCS are looking for 1,500 musicians to join them at their B14 event on Saturday 3 May 2014 at the Epic Centre on the Lincolnshire Showground. 

Nikki-Kate Heyes MBE, CEO, soundLINCS, said: “B15 is a truly unique and exciting project which involves a brand new commissioned piece of music that will embrace the infinite possibilities of music from our distant past, present and into the future. Whether you’re part of a group or make music alone, you can sign up to be a part of what will be a big, bold and amazing performance!” 

If you find playing with other musicians enjoyable and inspirational and would like to be a part of an event that will capture the imagination of hundreds of people young and old, soundLINCS wants to hear from you whatever your age, level of experience or music genre.

Musicians and singers will perform a piece of music involving 15 different  music genres – including Jazz bands, orchestras, rock bands, choral -  based on one traditional Lincolnshire song.

The performance will be broadcast online and viewed around the world and as part of the celebrations there will be an attempt to break a mass participation Guinness world record, details of which will be revealed here in the coming weeks.

Peter Knott, Area Director, Arts Council England, said: “B15 sounds like it will be a spectacular event to celebrate soundLincs’ work over the past 15 years and I would really encourage musicians to get involved and take up the challenge of breaking a Guinness World Record.”
