Welcome to the website of the Cornwall Music Education Hub!


Led by Cornwall Council, our Hub is made up of over 40 partners and supporting organisations all working together to support music education for young people in Cornwall. This website provides an insight into our current activities and how you can get involved.

Vision for Cornwall’s Music Education Hub

The Cornwall Music Education Hub will champion, celebrate and grow Cornwall’s rich music heritage and, through inclusive, dynamic and innovative learning, will inspire children and young people to achieve their musical potential.

Further information about the membership and purpose of the CMEH can be found on the ‘About’ page.

Snappy Premiere in Launceston

Launceston Town Hall

Tickets: FREE (no booking required)

Featuring young people from

  • St Issey CE Primary School
  • St Petroc’s CE Primary School
  • St Stephen’s Community Primary School
  • Tregadillett Primary School
  • Warbstow Community Primary School

Snappy Operas is a new nationwide project by Mahogany Opera Group to create new short operas with young people aged 7-11 that’s heading to Launceston this April.

This term young people from across Cornwall are working with professional musicians to bring to life five new ten-minute long operas: learning words and music, creating props and costumes. Discover what they’ve made in an energetic evening of music and theatre, when the children will perform Snappy Operas for the first time.

The operas have been written by some of the UK’s most exciting composers and writers, including Errollyn Wallen, Emily Hall, Toby Litt and Ian McMillan, working together with groups of young people in Cornwall, Cumbria, Norfolk, North Tyneside and Suffolk. They are a collection of lively stories set to a variety of musical styles with elements of jazz, folk and classical.

Inspired by the Brothers Grimm, real life experiences and ideas from the children themselves, the evening will feature colourful characters including unicorns, dodos, sheep, hens and even headlice!

Come and see what these local young opera-makers have been up to.

Snappy Operas is a Mahogany Opera Group production in partnership with Cornwall Music Education Hub, generously supported by Michael Tippett Musical Foundation and PRS for Music Foundation (Talent Development Partnership).
