Afternoon Schools Concert Initative
We want to engage with a younger audience and encourage the next generation to embrace classical music to ensure its future. Now in their fourth year, our concerts for schools now draw capacity audiences from years 5-13.
We continue to attract highly talented, young musicians from Britain's top Conservatoires and these Friday afternoon concerts, lasting one hour, are all held in the wonderful James Wyatt Music Room at the Castle by kind permission of the Earl & Countess of Devon. Continuing sponsorship allows school parties to attend completely free of charge with the aim of encouraging young people to experience a wide variety of fine music being created right in front of them - with brief descriptions from the performers and the chance to ask questions afterwards.
