“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.” Sir Simon Rattle
Apollo Music Projects brings live classical music to children who might not otherwise experience it. Over 11 years, more than 6600 children have experienced the magic of live performance from classroom to concert hall, culminating in the thrilling spectacle of a full orchestra in concert.
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.
We are inviting schools who are not currently participating in our programme to come and see us in action! A special concert designed for school children in Key Stage 2 will take place on Tuesday 11th June 2019 at 13.30. The concert will be at Hackney Empire, a beautiful venue in East London and will last one hour.
If you are a teacher or parent from a school which you feel would benefit from the experience of seeing a full symphony orchestra perform, do get in touch! We want everyone to be able to experience the excitement of hearing an inspiring concert of music by Schumann and Mendelssohn in a prestigious concert hall. Tickets are being offered at the subsidised cost of £2 per ticket. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity for your pupils to see and hear a live orchestra in concert at Hackney Empire!
“A once in a lifetime experience that really changes your mind about music.” Year 5 pupil, Ambler Primary School, Islington
“The students in my class who play instruments seemed to find it inspiring, but it was those with no background in music and those who had never encountered musicians before who got the most out of this. They may never have the opportunity again.” Year 5 teacher, Tetherdown Primary School, Haringey
If you are interested, we would be thrilled to have you join us. If you would like more information or to reserve places, please contact Csenge Herman (Company & Schools Administrator) by emailing email@example.com or phone Apollo Music Projects on 020 8986 4101.
We are delighted to welcome four new primary schools to the Apollo programme: Arnhem Wharf, Lea Valley, St. Joseph’s, London Fields and Tyssen Primary Schools will all be starting in the next few weeks. We are delighted to be working with them, and look forward to a fantastic year. This takes the total number of schools for this year to 27, our highest total so far. We look forward to adding more schools next year, with several new schools already signed up to start in September.
