Open to an in-person audience of schools from anywhere in London for the very first time since the pandemic, we can’t wait to play for you once again.

This year’s theme is Human/Nature – we’ll be exploring humanity’s relationship with our fragile natural world through music. Join us for classics like Rimsky-Korsakov’s frantic Flight of the Bumblebee, atmospheric pieces from Beethoven and living composer Dai Wei, and even a touch of Disney magic in “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana.
