The Multi Storey Orchestra – Peckham Schools Project

BlueSpark Foundation supported The Multi-Story Orchestra’s ‘Peckham Schools Project’: 22 workshops with school children from six local state schools. Working with two classes from each of the primary schools, the students created their own piece through in-school sessions led by singer-songwriter Abimaro Gunnell and composer Kate Whitley. Students from Harris Academy and St Thomas the Apostle College received training from MSO’s Conductor and musicians; they learnt new repertoire, developed musical skills and performed alongside our professional musicians. The schools then came together for performances on 13th and 14th June 2019 at Bold Tendencies Car Park in Peckham.
