Apollo Music Projects is in the eleventh year of its music education programme in primary and special schools, having so far reached over 5400 children in 35 primary, secondary and special schools and over 20,000 children in assemblies and schools concerts. AMP brings live classical music to children, taking them on a journey from a first experience of live performance in the classroom to the thrilling spectacle of a full orchestra in concert. This program was featured in an episode of BBC2′s Artsnight last March, presented by Armando Iannucci. The episode explored “high culture” art forms, including classical music – asking why some people feel excluded from it, and why classical music matters so much.
