Bringing international musicians and great chamber music to Northumberland.

Outreach & Education

We are developing our outreach and educational projects which we hope, in the coming years, will include:

  • Family concerts, Children’s concerts and Singing workshops
  • Primary school and Secondary school workshops
  • Pre-concert talks and Lecture recitals
  • Masterclasses
  • Retirement home concerts
  • Daytime concerts.

There are three specific events in the 2018-19 season:

Magnard Ensemble

St Michael’s Church, Bailiffgate, Alnwick NE66 1LY

This special Children’s Concert is mainly for 5-11 year olds. We hope to work with the local primary schools in preparation for this concert, based on some of Roald Dahl’s ‘Revolting Rhymes’ and ‘Dirty Beasts.’ Paul Patterson and Martin Butler, two of today’s better-known British composers, have worked closely with the Magnard Ensemble to set Roald Dahl’s stories to music for a narrator, wind quintet and pianist.

Northumberland Hall, Market Place, Alnwick NE66 1TN

Horovod are a locally based folk and world music group specialising in music from the Balkans, Greece and Turkey. This hour long interactive family concert will appeal to people of all ages. Payment will be on a ‘pay what you think it’s worth’ basis.
