The Sage Gateshead - UK

Its distinctive architecture makes the Sage Gateshead in northern England a landmark. Nevertheless, it is best known for inclusive music teaching.

The Kavli Trust supports its Big Sing and Big Sing for Mini Singers collaborations with schools. Some 2 780 children and 316 staff from 54 schools took part in this very wide-ranging choir education project in 2014. A number of the schools are among the most troubled in north-east England. The project brings pupils and teachers together with professional musicians as instructors. After seven months of teaching and practising, they are ready for concerts at the Sage.
