I’ve been lucky enough to see loads of the wonderful Education work we’ve been doing over the last few months: going to Hastings to watch a fabulous Anthem for a Child concert, taking part in workshops at a special needs school in south-east London and going on a journey with OAE TOTS at the Southbank Centre (as well as lugging children’s instruments to/from school and shepherding schools into Kings Place)!
And, I have to say, kudos to our Education team Cherry and Ellie- the logistics of organising so many different projects is exhausting to even think about and they’re still smiling after every event!
Tonight, they’re taking the Anthem tour to Old Spitalfields Market at 6pm with home-grown young musicians from Tower Hamlets and CM Sounds.
Then, they’ll be travelling across to the Southbank Centre on Sunday 24 June for two free OAE TOTS workshops at the Royal Festival Hall as part of the Sounds Venezuela festival…
And on Monday 25 June, the Anthem tour will be on the Clore Ballroom at the Royal Festival Hall for a free concert at 5pm, where children from across London will perform the two specially written Anthems by composer James Redwood.
Finally, the whole project comes to an end on Friday 29 June at Cecil Sharp House where OAE musicians will be joined by local London primary schools and groups from the nationwide Anthem tour for a final sing and send off.
Wow. Those girls deserve a medal, or at least a well-earned rest after all that!
