20 young violinists from London Music Master’s Bridge to the Commmunity Project gave another successful performance of their favourite tunes in this special concert at Westminster Music Library, with an audience of Open Age members and the general public. The concert featured music by Mozart and Handel.
The Bridge Project is an educational initiative which identifies and nurtures young children who might not otherwise have the opportunity to engage in classical music. They will be starting work at a primary school in Westminster in September 2011.
The children have been playing together for 3 years and have already performed on the stage at the Royal Festival Hall and at St John’s, Smith Square, as well as taking part in many smaller performances across London, as part of the unique Bridge to the Community scheme.
After the performance, all the children were set a task of finding a book from the Music Library shelves about a famous composer, and telling the rest of the group one interesting fact that they had discovered.
