Bromsgrove Junior Waits

Junior Waits 02When Worcestershire Early Music evolved from Worcestershire Arts Education in 2009 Barbara Dunn and Micaela Schmitz started the Bromsgrove Junior Waits programme at Parkside Middle School with taster workshops at various Worcestershire schools. The Junior Waits performed at the school and at Avoncroft Museum of Buildings and at a fundraising garden party. Funding was received from David Morgan Music Trust and Worcestershire Arts Education with instruments loaned by Midlands Early Music Forum.
