Chamber Orchestra Workshop for Primary Schools
26 March

Many children from disadvantaged backgrounds do not have the opportunity to access art and culture or to experience the joy of live music, and especially live classical music. Apollo Music Projects helps to address this by taking children on an inspirational journey, gradually introducing them to the instruments of the orchestra, the musicians who play them and the music they play. Children develop their confidence, understanding and enjoyment of classical music, before experiencing a spectacular symphony orchestra concert here at Shoreditch Town Hall.
