Sound Around Schools Concert

Venue: Hexagon Theatre (Directions)

Tue 6 Mar to Wed 7 Mar
Sold out


Don't miss this exciting opportunity for KS2/KS3 students to experience the thrill of a live orchestral concert. Uniquely the concert will be devised, produced and presented by a team of young people including those with additional needs from Ranelagh School, Bracknell, supported by internationally renowned music leader, Tim Steiner, musicians from the RPO and staff at The Hexagon on every aspect of presenting a concert like no other where preconceptions about classical music and orchestras will be challenged at every opportunity.    

The concerts are inclusive and designed by and for young people with additional needs as well as those in mainstream education. They are particularly suitable for KS3 students although we also welcome Yr 5 and 6 for whom this concert would be appropriate.   

The amazing skills of the Royal Philharmonic players will be on show in music chosen specifically to engage and introduce young people to the amazing sound world of orchestral music as they perform everything from classical to film and TV and game music.   

Tickets to the concerts are free*. Schools are responsible for arranging their own transport to the venue and for providing the appropriate number of staff.  
*A cancellation fee of £100 plus VAT will be charged if a school groups does not attend after tickets have been allocated.   

You will be expected to complete a short evaluation as part of your free ticket offer.
