This November we have not one, but two musical superstars visiting our schools!
Conductor Marin Alsop marks her appointment to the London Music Masters Advisory Council with a visit to Ashmole Primary School. Marin has long been a supporter of our work, and in 2016 we sent five of our teachers over to Baltimore to collaborate with the OrchKids, the music education programme she founded at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. As well as seeing our work in action, Marin will lead a conducting masterclass with the Ashmole string orchestra and two of our Alumni, who will be testing their baton skills under the guidance of this world famous conductor.
The following week, Prior Weston school will welcome cellist and LMM Junior Ambassador Sheku Kanneh-Mason. Recently featured in Time Magazine, Sheku is surely the busiest teenage musician on the planet. He is taking time out of his studies and global performance schedule to inspire the young cellists at Prior Weston School.
