For over 20 years Wigmore Hall's renowned Learning programme has been giving people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities opportunities to take part in creative music making, engaging a broad and diverse audience through innovative creative projects, concerts, events and online resources.
The spirit of chamber music lies at the heart of all that we do: making music together as an ensemble, with every voice heard and equally valued.
We collaborate with a range of community, health, social care and education organisations, working together to engage people who might not otherwise have the opportunity to take part.
Our programme comprises:
- Schools and Early Years, including our new Partner Schools Programme, in which we work in partnership with schools and Music Education Hubs to co-produce activity over three years, creating a creative whole school plan for music.
- Community, including Music for Life, our programme for people living with dementia and their care staff; and projects led by Wigmore Hall Learning Associate Artists Ignite, including hospital schools projects, on which we partner with Chelsea Community Hospital Schools; Musical Portraits, a project for young people with Autistic Spectrum Disorders in partnership with National Portrait Gallery and Turtle Key Arts; and projects with the Cardinal Hume Centre, a centre for adults who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
- Family, which invites families to come to Wigmore Hall to take part in inspiring, one-off workshops and concerts.
- Events and projects for Young People, including Young Producers, a project which invites 14 – 18 year-olds to programme, plan, promote and present their own concert at Wigmore Hall.
- Behind the Music, a programme of study events including talks, lecture-recitals, masterclasses, study groups and Come and Sing days.
Play a vital role in enabling our team to deliver over 400 education and outreach projects each year.
