Chaptr and The Music Halls Project

At Chaptr, we’re lucky enough to regularly collaborate on projects with brands who inspire us with their purpose, projects like The Music Halls.

The Music Halls Project (Music Halls) is a non-profit, grassroots initiative on a mission to reimagine underused community spaces like churches and other historic buildings to allow musical concerts, often with a cultural significance, to take place.

Music Halls launched in Waltham Forest, London and has ambitions to reverberate across the nation to reignite communities with music at a time when they need it most.

There is something particularly apt about bringing music concerts into underused public spaces, uniting people once again with the power of sound, during a stifling period of prolonged isolation in a COVID-era; we’re all feeling it now.

“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” – Bob Marley

We asked Sam Jones, Creative Director for Music Halls, why the Music Halls project is so important to him and our society:

Chaptr, for Music Halls, was an obvious fit. Joe instantly got what Music Halls was all about. It was obvious to us that Chaptr was integrated into the creative arts sector, having worked with key arts organisations over the last few years, so spoke the language that we were trying to articulate.

Joe seemed to understand the elements of innovation we were interested in bringing about in the sector, and we were able to relate these aspirations to the shared priorities of Chaptr. It was clear to us that they were keen to support organisations like ourselves, and we saw a lot of synergy and working with them. We are very excited to be working with chapter and look forward to a strong partnership for many years to come.

Joe Perkins, MD at Chaptr said

“Sometimes a project comes along which inspires you, led by great people who inspire you. This is one of those. Sam is someone driven to make a positive social impact with all the projects he’s involved in – and Music Halls pays further tribute to this. We’re excited to be trusted with helping him to reach a wider audience with a new website that inspires more people to get involved”.
