Nokia MixRadio shows support for Bristol Music Trust

Nokia MixRadio announces a major three year sponsorship deal with the Bristol Music Trust, who runs the prestigious Colston Hall, a venue in the South West of England, as well as a region wide education programme called Bristol Plays Music.

Their support will focus on two fundamental elements of the work of the Trust, a new music series to be launched in 2014 and support for the ongoing music education programme The Remix Academy.

The Nokia MixRadio Series will run four live events per year showcasing the impressive array of talent involved in the programme. These will be open to the public and details of the first event will be shared soon. The Remix Academy programme will reach over 9,000 young people annually, particularly focusing on the Trust’s work with disadvantaged and hard to reach young people in the city of Bristol. The support will enable the program to expand its work of providing young people with weekly workshops where they can develop their creative and musical skills, as well as providing access to the latest music technology and fully equipped rehearsal space.

Neal Wagner Content Director at  Nokia MixRadio says of the partnership:

The opportunities offered by Bristol Music Trust are hard to beat; its programme of artists is impressive and we are looking forward to co-presenting some brilliant events, but it is the Trust’s work with talented young musicians with huge potential to make great music that really got us excited at Nokia MixRadio. We very much look forward to working with the team.

Louise Mitchell of Bristol Music Trust says:

This is a game changer for the Bristol Music Trust. As a new charity the support of an international company such as Nokia MixRadio will make a huge difference. We have some exciting announcements about our joint artistic programme to come in the following months and we will reach more young people with our education programmes in partnership with Nokia MixRadio.
