Music and Drama Education Awards 2024 – Winners!






Huge congratulations to our Birmingham Music Education Hub Partners, ExCathedra and Birmingham Contemporary Music Group (BCMG) after their recent success at the recent Music and Drama Expo Awards 2024.

ExCathedra and BCMG were nominated in the following categories and both were awarded the top prize.

Winner: ChoirMaker, Ex Cathedra

The judges appreciated the focus, rigour and innovation of this resource, which was designed in response to a clear gap in the provision of singing at Key Stage 2 and 3. They felt that the musical selections and range made this an ideal standalone yet supportive resource.
