RPO resound at Business4Better


Children from St Cuthbert with St Matthias Primary School perform at Business4Better

RPO resound – the Orchestra’s Community and Education team – delivered a triumphant performance at the Kensington Olympia this week, with the help of fifty young students from St Cuthbert with St Matthias Primary School in Earl’s Court.

As part of a partnership with events-led marketing and communications company UBM, the team of RPO musicians, led by workshop leader Sigrun Griffiths, had the opportunity to perform to an audience of hundreds, from the main stage of the Business4Better event.

Not only did pupils have a chance to show off their musical flare and imagination at this high profile event; they were also kind enough to let event-goers pop into the workshops throughout the day, giving them a chance to hear the performance in development. It also provided a strong example of partnership working in action at this event which aimed to forge close links between charitable organisations and the business community.

Congratulations to all our participants on an amazing performance!
