Sir Simon Rattle celebrates the work of Apollo Music Projects with special guests Samuel West and BBC New Generation Artist Leonard Elschenbroich. Apollo Music Projects brings the magic of classical music to life for children who might not otherwise experience it. Over 10 years, 5000 children have been taken on thrilling journeys from the classroom to the concert hall, and with Apollo Music Projects founder and conductor David Chernaik at the helm this is a chance to experience the excitement.

Be caught up in the magic as Sir Simon Rattle conducts Ravel’s spellbinding Mother Goose. If you’d like to get even closer, Sir Simon will be talking to Gala ticket holders in person at the post-concert VIP reception.

‘Classical music can be a thrilling adventure, a magic carpet that can change the lives of children. We badly need creative and imaginative ways to put this across, and I salute Apollo Music Projects for providing just this with seemingly endless commitment and enthusiasm. Thank you Apollo!’
(Sir Simon Rattle, Patron, Apollo Music Projects)
