We are delighted to share with your our Annual Report 2016-2017. Over the course of the 2016-2017 financial year we have:
- delivered four residential courses and weekend workshops for 95 young musicians aged 11-18 as part of the National Orchestra for All (NOFA), the UK’s only non-auditioned, free of charge, national youth orchestra, including young people with the broadest range of challenges to date (including young carers and those with no fixed abode) and players from Northern Ireland for the first time.
- worked with over 330 young musicians from 30 schools and community groups from the South East, Midlands, North West and, for the first time, Yorkshire as part of the Modulo Programme. The programme supports music teachers and community music leaders to set up and run instrumental ensembles and brings them together for Regional and National Meets to play as large-scale orchestras.
- trained eight trainee teachers in key ensemble leadership and conducting skills through our Conductors for Change (CFC) programme, as well as securing a substantial two-year grant from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation to develop face-to-face and online training to reach more teachers from 2017.
