Situation

Orchestra Unwrapped intends to break down any barriers prohibiting the enjoyment of, and engagement with, classical music. The programme reaches thousands of children who are unlikely to otherwise have the opportunity to hear a professional symphony orchestra.

Solution

Orchestra Unwrapped provides an age-appropriate appealing introduction to the musicians, instruments and repertoire of the orchestra. The project offers children, many from disadvantaged backgrounds, access to high quality live music education through a dynamic programme of interactive schools concerts, bespoke cross-curricular educational materials for the classroom, teacher training and online learning guides.
