“Following the partnership last September with MixRadio and Bristol Music Trust who run Colston Hall, we have been focusing on two fundamental elements to bring this to life. The launch of the Terrace Sessions is the part of this, bringing a new kind of music to Colston Hall and the other is an ongoing music education programme called The Remix Academy. The Remix Academy has reached over 9,000 young people in Bristol helping them to discover their own musical talents. You never know, they may be on the Terrace in a few years time flying the flag for Bristol music!”
