“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 15 years, more than 11,000 children have experienced the magic of live performance from classroom to a 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.
A wonderful occasion as Braimah and Konya Kanneh-Mason, our newest Apollo Associate Artists, visited London Fields Primary School to play to KS2, including Year 4 Kanneh-Mason class! The children were understandably thrilled at meeting their heroes, and were an amazing audience. The children wrote delightful letters to Braimah and Konya: “You have made me as happy as I can be. I thought music wasn’t my thing, but when I saw you, you inspired me so now I want to do piano and violin.” Thanks to both wonderful artists for an amazing and inspiring afternoon.
We are now finalising our list of participating schools for 2019-20, and have a few places left. We look forward to adding more schools next year, with several new schools already signed up to start in September. If you are interested in joining the Apollo programme, please get in touch, or if you know of a school that would. be interested please pass on the details. Next year will be our most ambitious yet, with 30 primary school places on offer.
