We are passionate about inspiring the next generation of musicians and launched BaRocks! in December 2015. It is our aim to provide exciting and engaging education projects to involve as many children as possible across all age groups and abilities.
The projects are led by Chris Parsons and other musicians from the ensemble. They are joined by both singers and instrumentalists depending on the nature of the project. We have delivered several education workshops since the start of BaRocks, and have many in the pipeline.
Our work with the Horrible Histories author, Terry Deary has also helped in broadening our audience to include children. We have recently recorded a video with Terry called ‘The Glorious Georgians’ and this will form a major part of a future education project we are working on taking UK wide. We have worked with many festivals and music hubs across the UK to deliver projects based around Handel’s Water Music, Handel’s Fireworks Music and Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.
