In school

The London Philharmonic Orchestra works with schools in its four home boroughs of Southwark, Lambeth, Lewisham and Royal Greenwich. Each year 16,000 people come to the RFH to watch BrightSparks concerts and we work with 4,000 pupils and teachers within school.

In School

All our work in school is designed to complement and extend existing musical provision in school and in the borough, and to reflect and illuminate areas of the relevant National Curriculum.

"I think this is an opportunity that most children would not get outside school. It was wonderful to see them excited when they heard the orchestra play music they had been introduced to in school."
