Apollo Music Projects transforms the lives of children through music. We do this in three ways:
By working closely with the children in interactive workshops including a wide range of live music and active participation
by helping children to develop self-confidence and improve concentration
and by giving children the chance to experience high-quality performances in the classroom and concert hall.
This year we will be working with 1100 children from 19 primary schools and one special secondary school in Hackney, Haringey, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest and Camden. The programme will include classroom sessions, orchestral workshops at Shoreditch Town Hall, Regent’s Hall, Great Hall, Leyton and The Dream Centre, Tottenham, and symphony orchestra concerts at Hackney Empire. Our enthusiasm and vision is based on the passion of our team of musicians to inspire through education, reinforced by the joyful response we get from the children.
“David and the AMP orchestra deliver music at the highest standard, beautifully played and imaginatively presented and at no time talking down to the children. Lucky kids who get to experience their work: if only it could be open to more people…” Sir Simon Rattle
