An interactive, whistlestop tour of new music and composition!
In our annual concert for schools, London Sinfonietta musicians and presenter Patrick Bailey explore how to compose and create new music. Listen to pieces by living composers, join in with the performance and hear new works by young people who have taken part in our Sound Out project.
The concert will be held at 11am and will last about 45 minutes. It's ideal for pupils in key stage two, but all are welcome. If you have specific questions about your group, please get in touch.
