Thank you to the fantastic musicians who performed at Sound of the Times ’18 LIVE at the Rose Theatre on Friday 2 February. They covered all genres and put on an amazing show, celebrating the best new sounds of South West London. These are acts who impressed judges from a competition celebrating young fresh talent in the music industry. There will be a Sound of the Times album available to download soon.
We are currently recruiting for 10 volunteers to work on our latest oral history project, Kingston RPM: Records, Music & People which celebrates the music history of Kingston from 1940s to 1970s. The project will bring to light the borough’s involvement in the record industry, its gigs scene
and the American Army’s influence on modern day swing.
No previous technology experience required, as full training will be provided; more important is a love of music, an interest in history and Kingston’s past and an ear for a story.
The histories collected will feature in an exhibition at the Rose Theatre from June, as well as make a contribution to Kingston’s History Centre and Archives and resource pack for local schools. There will also be wider opportunities to support heritage events as part of IYAF 2017.
Expenses and travel will be paid.
More information about the role requirements can be found here.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org Kingston RPM Volunteering as the subject title by 10am, Wed 19 April to apply.
