This concert celebrates the achievements of some of the most gifted and talented musical pupils and students in our schools and community.
It features a diverse range of ensembles including, bands, choirs, soloists and school groups, as well as our jazz ensemble, combined borough orchestras, dancers and drummers, and collaborations with Music Education Hub partners.
Over 350 young people from Hackney’s primary, secondary and special schools will take to the stage, all of whom have excelled in music in their respective schools and borough-wide ensembles.
The Gala Concert incorporates the Mayor’s Music Awards for the fourth year. The MMA is a fund, established by the Mayor of Hackney, to help and support aspiring young musicians to develop their musical skills and to recognise the quality of the music education offer in Hackney’s schools. There are three categories: Pupil Award for Musical Achievement; Instrument Fund for Ensemble Development; and an award for Excellence in Music Education Practice. Please come along and join in the celebrations.
