Welcome to ‘Music for Fidel’


Ever Wanted to Write a Musical? Now’s Your chance!

This is a free educational competition open to UK schools, colleges and universities.  The project is about engaging students to compose and submit their own songs for ‘Fidel’ – a musical about Fidel Castro and the Cuban revolution. We have outlined the plot and a brief for each song, and you can choose which songs you would like to work on. Each institution can submit their best 3 songs (see our competition tab for details). Deadline for submission is 6th November 2015 for the autumn term and 21st July 2015 for the summer term.  Schools/colleges can have joint projects between music and other departments (e.g. English, history, politics, Spanish) for the lyrics. Early registration recommended – see log-in. Continue reading
