First Notes project begins with music sessions at 22 Manchester primary schools


Throughout February and March 2019, Manchester Camerata musicians are working alongside 22 primary schools to compose a song cycle of original music, culminating in a performance of the piece at the Royal Northern College of Music in April 2019.

In partnership with Manchester Music Education Hub, each school is working on a song that draws inspiration from the story of The Lorax by Dr Seuss, an existing environment-based children’s story chosen by teachers to help portray humankind’s impact on the environment.

We’re now half way through the music sessions and some fantastic songs have been created! The event on 5th April will bring together all of the young people’s ideas into one mass performance alongside Manchester Camerata musicians.
