Music

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

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.

Schools are now able to register interest for Concert Party on a number of dates in the autumn term 2018 and spring term 2019.

Swing Band Tour

Both our Junior and Senior Swing Band tour local primary schools each year, performing a mixture of classic and contemporary big band music.

To register your interest for the upcoming tour, which will take place in December 2018, email: outreach@kes.org.uk

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.
