A recap on the LMM10 Festival
To kick start our fortnight of festivities, Founder Director Victoria Robey spoke with Gillian Moore in front of an invited audience recounting the story of London Music Masters.
At The Movies – a film-themed family music making event – designed by some of our Alumni.
Parents and students came together for At The Movies, to create original music for films in the dramatic setting of the Vaults, Waterloo.
Sheku Kanneh-Mason came to Ashmole Primary School to perform in an assembly, followed by a motivational Q&A with parents of our young cellists!
Former LMM Award Holder Hyeyoon Park and the London Contemporary Orchestra joined forces to present Classical Secret at the 1901 Arts Club, featuring an award winning London Music Masters commission by composer Mark Bowden.
We spent a day ‘taking-over’ the Royal Academy of Music with our young musicians participating in creative workshops and performances led by the amazing team at RAM.
Our Royal Academy of Music day had something for everyone, with a concert for babies and toddlers, and a parent choir!
Visitors went behind the scenes to observe Reception, Year 1 and Year 3 musicianship and violin lessons at St Barnabas School.
The newly refurbished Queen Elizabeth Hall played host to hundreds of guests witnessing a decade on stage at the LMM10 Showcase Concert. We managed to fit over 200 perfomers on the stage (although not all at the same time!).
The special concert featured 200 children, world-renowned artists, 4 world premieres, LMM Alumni and an incredible ensemble.
We continued our Connections Concerts series with an amazing performance from the Ligeti Quartet.
The concert took place at Jubilee Primary School. Connections Concerts are an opportunity for remarkable musicians to perform in the heart of our school communities.
A Connections Concert also took place at St Mary’s Bryanston Square School, with an incredible performance from Paolma Kouider and former LMM Award Holder Alexandra Soumm.
Mini Music Masters took place at Jessop Primary School. Families from the local community were given a chance to take part in fun musicianship workshops!
One Inspiring Evening was a fabulous chance to hear the London Music Masters teachers (and some staff!) perform.
The concert took place at St John’s, Waterloo, and the programme featured Prokofiev, Bartok, Coldplay and Star Wars!
The festival came to a close with the brilliant Alumni Celebration at Wheatsheaf Hall.
The event was design and curated by LMM Alumni, and it was a celebration of everything the Alumni have achieved since graduating from the LMM Learning Programme.
During the festival we also premiered our new film, featuring interviews with some of our students, teachers, headteachers, artists and parents!
