The 2013 Schools concert at Hackney Empire took place on Wednesday 3 July 11.30-12.30. The programme included Beethoven’s Egmont Overture and Brahms’ 4th Symphony, 1st and 4th movements. The concert was attended by 560 children from the schools taking part in the 2012-13 programme in Hackney and Tower Hamlets: Orchard, St. Monica’s, Southwold, Shacklewell, Rushmore, St. Matthias, Nightingale, Harry Gosling and Columbia primary schools, and Stormont House Special school.
The Apollo programme in nine primary schools in Hackney and Tower Hamlets was a great success. New schools taking part were Shacklewell and Southwold Primary Schools, and we were pleased to be working again with children in Rushmore, Nightingale, Orchard, St. Monica’s, St. Matthias, Columbia and Harry Gosling Primary Schools. All of the children were a pleasure to work with, and we shared in thier delight as they experienced live music in the classroom, at Shoreditch Town Hall and Hackney Empire.
