Young People In Schools

Posted on August 13, 2014

Manchester Camerata’s school projects are designed in collaboration with partner schools to bring learning to life. Projects are participant-led and use creativity and learning through music and the arts to promote personal and social development, raising self-confidence and self-esteem, in children and young people, which impacts upon wider school engagement and achievement. This is not an enrichment activity but a core part of learning.

‘I have frequent engagement with Manchester Camerata and I commend its imaginative approach in engaging other parts of local services, particularly the fire and rescue service and the health service. The arts can not only engage young people and children in education, they can also help to engage adults in a whole range of other local services.’ – Ed Vaizey (The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport)
