Anthem for a Child was the OAE’s 2011-2012 Education project that was the most ambitious in size, scope and scale to date. Working across the country in 10 different locations from Devon to York, the OAE brought a series of teacher training, workshops and concerts to over 5000 children and students of all ages.

The centrepiece of the project was a 9-date Education Concert tour, which kicked off in Plymouth on 19 March 2012. We passed on a baton in sound between our 10 participating towns and cities, and ‘running’ alongside the tour, our musicians and staff have fundraised to support the ambitious project by cycling, running, swimming, walking or dancing a mile for every participant, in a Musicians’ Marathon.
