BBC Introducing Hereford and Worcester will be broadcasting live from Kidderminster College at 2:30pm on Sunday 17th February 2013.
The broadcast will feature some of the hottest new music acts from the area including students from Kidderminster College.
BBC Introducing brings together all of the BBC’s supporters of undiscovered and unsigned music. It gives unknown, local artists the chance to perform on stage at the country’s biggest gigs and festivals. The BBC have decided to host Hereford and Worcester’s live broadcast at Kidderminster College and the free to attend show will showcase some of the hottest new music acts from the area.
Andy Edwards, Music Programme Leader at Kidderminster College, commented “We are proud to be hosting the BBC Introducing event with the aim of showcasing some of the local talent that exists, not only at the college but also from the local area. This could be a chance for the public to see the very first gig of a future rock star”.
The BBC have decided to host it here because Kidderminster College boasts some of the best musical talent in the county, and to accompany this, they have industry standard, professional instruments and sound recording kits.
The BBC Introducing event is not the first time that the college has received recognition for their music facilities, with Ivor Novello winning Songwriter and Producer of Ronan Keating and Atomic Kitten Jem Godfrey, commenting “the Music course at Kidderminster College is the best I’ve seen. Genuine talent is being nurtured and the spectrum of teaching leaves me in no doubt that the stars of tomorrow owe a debt of gratitude to the amazing Tutors”.
Kidderminster College specialises in courses for Music and many other courses within the Creative Industries with around six hundred students currently enrolled on such courses at their Market Street campus.
