The London Festival Sinfonia are currently running large educational projects in London and across the UK, giving children and young people amazing opportunities to watch a live professional orchestra perform an exciting concert programme at their school, without individual cost. The cost of the projects are met by the school, the local council or music services (where appropriate).
This fantastic opportunity gives school children the experience to work with, watch and listen to a professional orchestra within their own school. Teachers are musically resourced through the concert and the music curriculum is supported and facilitated through this live learning experience. Children become inspired to make music and are challenged to consider beginning music lessons, therefore driving standards for music and continually creating and cultivating a thirst for music within their school.
"If the heart of a school beats for music and the arts, the drive and passion for learning is continually raised and sustained." (Richard Lockyer - Director of Learning, Jariram).
The London Festival Sinfonia would be delighted to give your students this wonderful musical opportunity. The orchestra is passionate about promoting a love of music within children and young people, and facilitating them along their own musical journey.
Recent concert programmes have included: Peter and the Wolf (Full Orchestra, Animation & Narrator), Schindler's List (Film Music), Exsultate, jubilate (Mozart), Hallelujah Chorus (Handel) and the film score from Pirates of the Caribbean.
Each concert programme is tailored to suit the needs of the school and is discussed and planned in conjunction with the schools head/director of music or teacher in charge of music.
