Music plays a central role in school life at King Edward’s. Each year a selection of our musicians visit primary schools to perform to audiences ranging in size from 40 to 700 children.
There are currently two music programmes available to primary schools.
Concert Party takes some of our best musicians to primary schools throughout the city on Friday afternoons, giving a short concert at each. The group talk about their instruments, show the children how they work and what is possible, and then perform, separately and together.
Both our Junior and Senior Swing Band tour local primary schools each year, performing a mixture of classic and contemporary big band music.
Our Senior Swing Band visits local primary schools giving 30 minute performances at each. To register your interest for the upcoming autumn tour, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Swing Band Tours, as well as 2016’s Romany Wood project, feature in the Schools Together Group’s series of music partnership case studies, ‘All Together Now…’. Read about the case studies of Romany Wood and the Swing Band Tours.
