‘Music Gives Me a Reason’ – MGCC’s 10th Birthday Anthem

Like every great celebration, MGCC’s 10th year needed an anthem. Our incredible colleagues and young artists embraced this opportunity to create an original, collaborative song with open arms, immense enthusiasm, focus and creativity. The result? The incredibly catchy anthem ‘Music Gives Me a Reason’!

The debut performance of this song was the finale piece at MGCC’s 10th birthday event, and absolutely raised the roof of a packed Everyman Theatre! Check out this clip HERE.
