Music industry experts who have worked with the likes of EMI are helping young people across the county prepare for a creative music extravaganza.

Nottinghamshire County Council presents its County Youth Arts Showcase 2015 – with three shows in just one week across the county – celebrating the cream of talent in Nottinghamshire.

Working alongside County Youth Arts colleagues at Nottinghamshire County Council, there has been vital support from a number of experts including Simon Tew and Ronnie Sampson, who are commissioned artists at County Youth Arts, in Leeming Street, Mansfield. Simon and Ronnie are both also full-time musicians who have produced music for EMI.

The three events are:

• Tuesday, February 17, from 7.30pm. Supergroup Showcase at the Royal Concert Hall, in Nottingham. There will be performances from the Supergroup collaboration, Unity countywide, singers, rappers and bands.

• Thursday, February 19, at 7pm. The Able Orchestra featuring students from Fountaindale School, Brunts School and members of the BBC Concert Orchestra at the Palace Theatre, in Mansfield.

• Friday, February 20, at 7.30pm. A Youth Dance Showcase at the Palace Theatre Mansfield. This event will feature Street and Contemporary and Urban companies from the county.
