• The Schools’ Concert is a creative project for local primary schools. Our goal with this project is to involve primary aged children to the joy of music making of very high quality.

    In 2018 children from Barnes Primary and St Paul’s School took center stage for an entire event for the first time in the history of the festival. They performed A. L’Estrange’s ‘Zimbe!’, together with the Rodolfus Choir and members of the Barnes Community Choir. In 2019 Leonardo Da Vinci inspired the children.

    Now in its 4th year, the Award looks ahead to the future of musical performance. BMF offers the winners an opportunity to perform during the festival.

    "Big thank you, James and the Rodolphus choir, for such a brilliant workshop - the children came out on a high singing all the songs , including the fruit song warm up you taught them...all the way back to school - adding in other fruits!" (Thomson House School)

    Youth Programme

    Our Youth Programme aims to engage local children and families. The festival’s youth projects provide opportunities for local school children to present their talent and skills to the community and to experience music making with others. Last year over 200 children were involved. They enjoyed inspiring co-operations with St Paul's School, St Paul's Girls' School, Harrodian School, Tiffin School, Junior Royal Academy, Junior Royal College of Music and our local Primary Schools. With the ‘Under 12 Free Entry’ scheme we also like to encourage families to join in.
