Over 2,000 children from schools across Haringey took part in the Haringey Schools’ Music Festival at the Royal Albert Hall. The event saw the world premiere of two specially commissioned pieces from local composers: James Redwood, Kate Stilitz and Jilly Jarman and young Haringey musicians including Noah Stoneman (BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year finalist, May 2016).
Haringey Cabinet Member for Customer Services and Culture, Councillor Bernice Vanier said:
“It’s fantastic that thousands of Haringey children performed at one of the most prestigious music venues in the world. The creativity, passion and diversity on display at the Haringey Schools’ Music Festival made the evening an amazing celebration of our young people.”
