Launched by pianist Kamilla Arku, the mission of the #EveryVoiceChallenge is to champion and celebrate diversity in the classical piano repertoire by promoting music by composers of colour. A curated collection of well-known classics, unearthed gems, and specially commissioned pieces, Kamilla's passion project challenges music students and teachers alike to embrace the wealth of music for the piano by often neglected composers.
Pieces are organised from beginner level to ABRSM Grade 8 and beyond, and each level contains works that are available with the project, as well as ones that are available for purchase from third parties, so there's something for everyone! Participating schools and individuals will receive information about the project, its composers, and be able to sign up for performance opportunities in #EveryVoiceChallenge Virtual Concerts.
To access the full collection and sign up for the Challenge, complete the form below. Don't forget to follow and post on social media: @everyvoicechallenge #everyvoicechallenge.
