We are pleased to announce that Jo Boswell has accepted the role of Vice Chair. Jo brings a wealth of knowledge into the team and is a keen amateur musician herself. We very much look forward to using Jo’s expertise to expand the reach of Apollo Music Projects.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
We are delighted to announce that our Schools Administrator Oliver Pashley has been appointed as Sub-Principal Clarinet with the wonderful Britten Sinfonia. A fantastic job and well-deserved. Sadly this means that Oli will not be able to continue as Apollo Schools Administrator. He has been a great member of our team, and a pleasure to work with. We wish him all success in his new role. Csenge Herman, our General Administrator will take on the additional role of Schools Administrator later this month, so everything will continue to run smoothly.
