Music for youth initiative to go to vote

A proposal to boost music education for young people has gained enough support to go to a nationwide ballot.

Around 145,000 citizens backed the Youth and Music people's initiative that was lodged with the Federal Chancellery on Thursday.

It calls for the government and cantons to encourage music training for children in particular and give young people access to musical activities.

Rock musician Stephan Eicher and classical singer Noëmi Nadelmann are among leading personalities backing the initiative.

Parliament still has to discuss the proposal before it goes to a nationwide vote in the next few years.
