Black Lives Matter

It has been incredibly sad watching recent events in America as unspeakable tragedies have led to a widespread outpouring of grief and demonstrations across the world.

European Youth Music actively celebrate diversity and stands in solidarity with all those who fight and suffer from racism. From work with the young people involved in our Refugee Choirs we recognise how devastating discrimination can be.

We are not silent – European Youth Music is proud to develop international friendship through high quality music making.
