This Sunday (3 May), students from Trinity Laban will join the London Philharmonic Orchestra (LPO) on the stage of the Royal Festival Hall for a special concert aimed at inspiring the next generation of musicians.
The concert is part of the LPO's FUNharmonics series, which is hosted by BBC children's television presenter Chris Jarvis and introduces young children to classical music. Sunday's American-themed concert has been co-curated by Joe Townsend, Creative Producer of Trinity Laban's internationally renowned CoLab festival. At the heart of the concert, Joe will join forces with Trinity Laban students to perform a fun set of bluegrass music, with plenty of audience participation.
After the concert, the audience will get to enjoy even more music courtesy of a performance in The Clore Ballroom at the Royal Festival Hall by the Trinity Laban New Orleans Jazz Band.
Trinity Laban enjoys an international reputation as a world leader in engaging with audiences, and Trinity Laban students are regularly invited to work with leading dance and classical music organisations. Forthcoming events include performances at the BBC Proms in July.
