Hunt for most musical city
A new competition launched by Arts Council England gives people the chance to choose the nation’s most musical city.
Ten cities from across the country have been short-listed at by the Arts Council’s Take it away scheme, which aims to make musicianship accessible and affordable for all. Celebrity ambassadors for each city, including Sting, Jamelia, Richard Hawley and Engelbert Humperdinck, lead the debate for the Most Musical City until voting closes on May 30, 2008.
The ten cities competing to win are Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Colchester, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle, and Sheffield.
