Feedback On Our Schools' Concerts Series

Our Schools' Concert series for 15/16 has included a thrilling introduction to Saint-Saëns' Carnival of the Animals for KS2, performed by the Trinity Laban Percussion Ensemble; an exploration of choral music composition and musical style in works by Bruckner, Haydn and Webern for KS5; and a celebration of Shakespeare's influence on story-telling through composition for KS3 and KS4.

"The students absolutely loved the concert! It was a really unique experience for them, and as staff we found the whole event was well planned, well supervised and in a great location. Thank you for having us - we indeed hope to be back soon!"
Boxgrove Primary School

"The concert was very well organised with appropriate content. It has helped our students retain information about the pieces and supported their revision."
George Abbot School

"The selection of pieces was excellent, with a lovely range of music. The logistics and 'choreography' worked really smoothly and made it much more than a concert. Finally, the performance of the music was outstanding."
St Alfege Church
