Fantastic schools concert at Hackney Empire

The Apollo Music Projects schools concert at Hackney Empire on Tuesday 8 July was an amazing occasion. Over 750 children from Primary and Special schools in Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Camden, Haringey and Islington enjoyed a programme featuring Beethoven’s “Pastoral” Symphony. The concentration and excitement was extraordinary, and the event was a fitting end to a fantastic year.
