Music Junction

Music Junction brings children and young people together from different social and economic backgrounds, and provides them with opportunities to develop artistic and social skills through shared music making experiences.
“These children accomplished so much during this project and if they could do that, they can do ANYTHING!”
Sam Nosal, Senior Teacher
High Close Barnardo’s School

Our Approach

Our unique outreach project is a three-tiered programme formed of: mentees – pupils who have had very limited or no access to classical music; mentors – pupils who have been learning an instrument; and LCO musicians. Each year, these groups come together for flashmobs, creative workshops and instrumental learning, working on a piece written specifically for them which is performed at the project showcase concert side-by-side with LCO.

In 2021 we celebrate 10
years of Music Junction.

Space

This year’s Music Junction theme is space!

Our mentee participants (pupils who have had very limited or no access to classical music) will be learning about our solar system, listening to music about space including Holst The Planets and playing along to a new composition about the Perseverance to Rover by Cheryl Frances-Hoad.
Hear Cheryl talk about her piece, The Exciting Marvellous Mars!
