Alongside a range of programmes and opportunities for schools, we are developing strategic partnerships with target schools.

Working together across a term, school year, or beyond, these partnerships aim to support and develop a school’s music or/and dance provision, raise attainment and build progression routes. 

Latest project outcome:

In March 2024, our Side-by-Side Strings project with 4 partner schools saw some of their young musicians performing with Trinity Laban Sinfonia Strings at St Alfege Church, Greenwich. Watch them describe their experiences and give the first performances of ‘Isolated Moments’ and ‘Londinium’, created for the occasion by Nathen Durasamy with fifteen young composers at Leigh Academy Blackheath:

Symphony Unwrapped

A Trinity Laban Learning & Participation Project

Bringing together Year 9 music students from Thomas Tallis School and older adults from Trinity Laban’s Inspired not Tired programme, in our Symphony Unwrapped project the participants worked together to discuss and reflect on issues of place and identity in the compositions of Grace Williams and Elizabeth MaconchyThis led to the group creating their own pieces of music featured in this film, which was shown alongside Trinity Laban Symphony Orchestra’s concert performance of the music at Blackheath Halls on 12 December 2019. The project was supported by the Association of British Orchestra’s Sirens grant scheme and the Ambache Charitable Trust, who aim to support and raise the profile of music by women composers.
