    Hi. In order to raise the profile of 'sophisticated' culture, we are having an arts enterprise day, with a focus on performance in general and classical music. Being head of Music (amongst my many job roles) (will stop now incase the fact that I spend less and less time teaching the subject I am trained to teach in order to prevent a rant [​IMG]), I have been given the task of organising this. Does anyone know of any organisations that would be able to provide a good value for money, motivating and engaging classical music workshop? (any period of Music history will do)

    Thanks in advance![​IMG]

    Have you asked what your own County Music Service can supply? In our county we have various music groups - wind, string etc that will come into schools and work with the pupils.

    If I was working in my previous LA, then without a doubt, I would have gone to them. My current music service are quite inflexible about what they can supply, and in the past when I have worked with them on other projects, they have not fulfilled the requirements or engaged our students. I am sure you can read between the lines! But thanks for the reply. I need something really creative that can engage students who largly due to cultural issues get minimal exposure to any Music. I'll find something in the end!
