Now time for some music by Felix Mendelssohn's good friend, Prince Albert (i.e. Queen Victoria's husband).… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
Next week we’re embarking on a 10-day tour with a difference. We’re visiting towns and cities the length and breadth (well, almost) of the country as part of our biggest ever education project, Anthem for a Child. It’s a 6 month programme, and this tour is the centrepiece, kicking off in Plymouth on 19 March.
As it’s Olympic year we decided to support this initiative to ‘pass on a baton of sound’ in a sporty fashion, so our musicians and staff have pledged to run, walk, cycle, swim or do something suitably tiring for 1 mile for each of the 5000 project participants. In return for that pledge we’re looking for your support for the project – yes, we want sponsors.
You can find out more about the project with the video above or visit the Anthem section of our website for a whole lot more information. We’ll be updating the blog as much as we can too with pictures and info as the tour progresses.
