Ipswich Education Programme – Video

Orchestras Live

Musicians from RPO resound, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s Community & Education team, have recently been supporting our residency at the Ipswich Regent Theatre with bespoke workshops, presentations and master-classes, tailored to benefit a wide range of local young people.

More than 1000 primary and secondary pupils were provided with the opportunity to hear performances by Orchestra members, directed by composer and workshop leader Hannah Conway. The presentations focused on Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, and at the end of the workshops smaller groups of students created their own Mussorgsky-inspired compositions.

You can hear some of the young people that we worked with prior to our concert on Friday 18th October, 7pm at Ipswich Regent Theatre. Please note that the pre-performance is free and no tickets are required.
