The Apollo Orchestra Land in Stormont House School

11th May 2018

We are really pleased to once again be working with the Apollo Orchestra on their ‘Schools Music Project’. Our Year 8’s will be working with the orchestra over the summer term to introduce them to the different members of the orchestra, which will include: a string quartet, brass ensemble and woodwind quartet.

The orchestra works with 1100 children from 19 primary schools and Stormont House School, the schools are spread across Hackney, Haringey, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest and Camden.

Our students will be able to experience 4 classroom sessions spread over the summer term and a symphony orchestra concert at Hackney Empire.

The Apollo Music project transforms the lives of children through music. The musicians work with the students to introduce them to a wide range of live music; students are actively encouraged to participate. The orchestra have found that through the project students’ self-confidence and levels of concentration improve greatly. Our students will also be able to experience high-quality performances both in the classroom and at a concert hall.
