We started the new season of our schools programme on 30 September at Orchard Primary School. This season includes 20 primary schools and one special school in Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Haringey, Camden and Waltham Forest, including several schools we haven’t worked with before.
We are delighted to announce that Armando Iannucci is joining Sir Simon Rattle as Patron of Apollo Music Projects. Armando is passionate about music and making it accessible. See his speech on the subject here. He recently featured Apollo Music Projects in a BBC Artsnight programme. Watch here. We are thrilled to welcome Armando to our team.
A huge thank you to Russell-Cooke Solicitors for their generous donation of £300 towards our special BBC Ten Pieces concerts at the Rose Theatre in Kingston. Their donation will support 127 children from Bond Primary School in attending one of the concerts, where many of them will be experiencing the thrill of a live symphony orchestra for the first time. Thank you!
We had a great delivery this morning – 20 brand new music stands to use at our upcoming children’s concerts! A huge thank you to all the team at Stentor Music for this generous donation – be sure to check out their full range of products on their website. We can’t wait for next week’s concerts!
