An interactive, whistle-stop tour of new music and composition!
In our annual concert for schools, presenter Patrick Bailey, London Sinfonietta musicians and our Sound Out Young Ensemble explore how to compose and create new music. Listen to pieces by living composers, join in with the performance and hear new work by young people who have taken part in our Sound Out and Composition Challenge programmes.
The concert will begin at 11am and will last approximately 45 minutes. It is ideal for pupils in Key Stage 2, but all are welcome. If you have specific questions about your group, please contact email@example.com.

‘The music is SO contemporary - literally fresh off the page. It is really exciting for students to see the process of coming up with ideas to watching the final piece of music being performed on stage and just not anything you could replicate anywhere else!’ Teacher, Sound Out Schools Concert, 2023
‘I find the live concert inspiring - my teaching is always refreshed after attending' Teacher, Sound Out Schools Concert, 2023
