Inspiring a passion for music at King Edward's

Inspiring a passion for music at King Edward's

We have commissioned a short video to celebrate the School's unique partnership with Bath Philharmonia and highlight the opportunities available to our young musicians as part of this annual, Side-by-Side partnership with the city of Bath's professional orchestra.

 Our relationship with Bath Philharmonia is now in its fifth year and has matured into a comprehensive, and year-long programme of workshops, performances, mentoring opportunities and masterclasses. This reinforces, and works in harmony with, the outstanding instrumental tuition that our young musicians receive from the School's own team of specialist Music staff, in the Junior, Pre-Prep and Senior schools.

Whilst the Bath Orchestral Gala Concerts in the Spring Term are undoubtedly the showcase of the Side-by-Side programme of events, the partnership has many far reaching educational aspects to it. We hope this video gives you a flavour of not only the inclusive, life-long and challenging educational outcomes, but most importantly, the fun, friendship and artistry shared and enjoyed by all.

NB the soundtrack to this video features KES musicians playing alongside Bath Philharmonia and performing Ravel's Boléro at this year's Gala Concert.

To find out more about the School's partnership with Bath Philharmonia, read about the most recent Gala Concert here, and the masterclass with BBC Young Musician of the Year finalist, Jess Gillam, here.
