The Glasshouse International Centre for Music is a home for live music lovers.
It's a place where you can hear rock legends or pop icons on the same night as folk trios or string quartets. Where new musicians are nurtured and showcased on the same stages as platinum-selling performers. And where youth choirs and tambourine-shaking toddlers practise in the same spaces as its acclaimed orchestra, Royal Northern Sinfonia.
Because as an international centre for music they're focused on creating and celebrating outstanding music - whether that's unearthing or growing talent from the region or bringing the world's best artists to their stages. And as a charity they're focused on making sure that all of that is available to anyone - no matter where you're from, how old you are, how much money you have, or what challenges you face.
Which is why every year more than 2 million people are able to join for top-notch gigs, concerts, and classes - in their venue at Gateshead Quays, out in communities across the North East, and through livestreamed performances and digital lessons.
Whether you're making it up or taking it in, you'll find music lives and grows here.
