Guildhall School of Music and Drama

Community creative learning

The Messengers is a project which sees people from vastly different backgrounds find a common purpose in writing and performing music together.

It brings together students from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and students from the St Mungo’s Recovery College.

The project is facilitated by the Guildhall School’s joint Creative Learning department with the Barbican.

The project aims to provide music students with the opportunity to learn how to work in a range of settings, and enable the charity for the homeless to give their students opportunities that will strengthen social skills and boost their confidence.

The Messengers gather at particular times each year to write songs and perform in intensive projects over 3 days.
