Musical Chairs

On Saturday 16 January 2016, a group of 57 intrepid musicians dusted off an old instrument or took up a brand new one and joined the National Orchestra for All for a day. Each raising around £250 in sponsorship, our fantastic participants raised over £19,000, all of which will go towards supporting young musicians across the UK facing challenging circumstances. We were delighted to have been joined by our Artistic Patron and head of conducting at the Royal Academy of Music, Sian Edwards, as well as special guest conductor, BBC presenter, writer and comedian, Sue Perkins!

 

How do I get involved? Find out more about how you can take part in Musical Chairs 2017 on Sunday 29 January 2017 here.
