LAMBETH MUSITRAX FESTIVAL 2018
Monday July 2nd 2018
MX WIND CONCERT 1.15PM
MX STRINGS CONCERT 5.30PM
Following on from the recent success of the annual Lambeth Music Festival, Lambeth Music Service returns to the newly refurbished Queen Elizabeth Hall to celebrate the success of the unique whole class ensemble teaching programme. The festival will feature over 400 young musicians from nine primary schools playing together in two concerts.
The music arranged by Lambeth Music Service staff includes classical, blues and pop tunes and will be performed alongside a professional band made up of tutors from the music service.
The festival showcases the achievements of Year 4 (aged 8-9) children who are learning through the Musitrax programme which is delivered to around 3500 children in Lambeth schools on a weekly basis. The Musitrax festival also commends the roles that schools and Lambeth Music Service play in preparing the children for the next stage of their development as young musicians. The concerts are a chance for the audience to see how the programme is taught from beginning to end and the progress the children have made over the course of a year.O
