1st April 2009 - 31st March 2010

Armonico Consort, is working to create 6 new school choirs of up to 120 children each and six new choir leaders over a 12 month period.  The choirs will be trained and developed by experts and the teachers will be mentored by the choir leader. They will be expected to learn on a weekly basis the key skills needed to effectively keep the choir going to a high level once the first part of the project is over and the main leader moves on.

What the schools said was best about the project?

"The staff values the expertise of the professional musicians, the advice they give and the training as to how to get the best out of young people singing this has encouraged us and gives us confidence to be able to lead music and the choir within our school".

What did the schools say the children thought were the best things about the project?

"Gaining confidence"

"Being given the chance to perform in a concert with professional musicians"

"I think it has been good discipline; they have had the benefit of being taught by professional musicians.  Even for those who do not usually take part in music, they have been given the opportunity to take part in a performance"
