Music Festival 2015

In 2015, College sponsored a number of education events at the Music Festival. These included:

  • A concert for schools and music explorers, attended by 700 pupils from ten schools
  • Workshops in 16 schools championed by James Mayhew and attended by 1,600 pupils across 24 sessions
  • BBC Music’s '10 pieces' training for primary teachers with the opportunity for pupils to attend live performances
  • Choir workshop 'Going for a song' for schools that normally have limited music opportunities

Girls benefited from an exclusive event in College with BBC Young Musician of the year 2014, Martin Bartlett, where he discussed his life, dealing with fame and even gave an incredible live performance. Martin went on to perform at the last night of the BBC Proms 2015. Groups of girls also went on trips to two major orchestral nights at the Music Festival.
