WATCH: Hawthorn Primary School: The First Two Years

Sage Gateshead is delivering one of six In Harmony England projects over the next three years. In Harmony is a national programme that aims to inspire and transform the lives of children in deprived communities within the UK, using the power and disciplines of community-based orchestral music-making.

In Harmony NewcastleGateshead is inspiring families and the wider community, increasing opportunities for children in one of the most deprived wards in the country. In Harmony is modelled around the schoolchildren participating in an orchestra, and Royal Northern Sinfonia, Orchestra of Sage Gateshead, are central to this project working with Hawthorn Primary School and Ashfield Nursery.

Funding from Arts Council England and Department for Education has bought a musical instrument for every child in the school and enabled music tutors from Sage Gateshead and the Newcastle and Northumberland Music Education Hub to work with the pupils, their parents and the school staff on a daily basis.
