The Year of… Project

Year of Guitar with Eden Stell2021 is Year of Guitar with the Eden Stell Guitar Duo!

Outstanding professional musicians visit local schools with Jackdaws to spread their passion and enjoyment for music with a whole school performance, and a workshop with a smaller group of children. Children from each school then join together for the Grand Finale performance, which is always a spectacular event.

The Year of…” is an ongoing large-scale project begun in 2013. Each year sees a different international classical musician or ensemble working with schools in Somerset. Visit the individual pages below for more information.
