Summary

The North Kensington Children's Orchestra uses music to transform the lives of 390 children in West London. The majority of children we support come from North Kensington, a disadvantaged neighbourhood impacted by the Grenfell tragedy. We believe that all children deserve the same chance to succeed, whatever their background. That's why any child can join our project free of charge.

Challenge

Teaching a youth orchestra during the pandemic has been challenging but with your support we can continue to provide our free programme to all 390 of our talented young musicians. We are proud to have offered continuity at a time when young people needed hope, solidarity and friendship more than ever before. Following 14 months of teaching online we are thrilled to be back playing together as a group. The music has never sounded so sweet!

Solution

Our young musicians have worked so hard this year, with our first ever ABRSM Grade 8 Distinction achieved in December, four more of our students gaining acceptance into the Royal College of Music Junior Department and a group of our most advanced musicians performing with Braimah Kanneh-Mason and Ella Knight in July. Your support will ensure their incredible progress continues despite the interruption to their lives caused by Covid-19.

Long-Term Impact

We teach music because it has a powerful effect on a child's development. Access to high-quality music education is a particular issue in our community where 1 in 4 children live in poverty. Our free project is accessible to any child aged 0-18, whatever their level of musical experience and background. Our intention is to create opportunity, break down social barriers and inspire. Being part of an orchestra is about building confidence and independence as well as creating lifelong friendships.
