600 young musicians aged 7-11 join the RLPO to celebrate 15 years of In Harmony Liverpool

Celebrating 15 years of In Harmony Liverpool

Today (18 March 2024), the Liverpool Philharmonic together with 600 young musicians aged 7-11 from Anfield and Everton, will celebrate 15 years of In Harmony Liverpool with a birthday concert at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. The performers from Faith Primary, The Beacon CE Primary and All Saints Catholic Primary will present a concert with Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra musicians to an audience of friends and family culminating in a joyous finale of massed choir and orchestra.

Launched in 2009 and benefiting over 4,000 children and young people, In Harmony uses orchestral music making to improve the life chances of children by increasing confidence, wellbeing, skills and resilience, enhanced by opportunities to travel, learn, perform and collaborate with professional musicians, international artists and other young people.

Children and young people make music every week free of charge, learn an instrument, compose, sing, rehearse and perform wide ranging music in orchestras and ensembles in schools, throughout the community and in concert venues. 

1,700 children and young people currently take part within and beyond the school day through partners, and many young people have gone on to perform in Resonate Youth Philharmonic, Liverpool Philharmonic Youth Company and the National Youth Orchestra’s Inspire programme.  

In Harmony Liverpool is part of the Liverpool Phiharmonic's wider learning and community engagement programmes and in 2022/23, over 100,000 participants of all ages took part in these, whilst over 18,000 people living with mental and physical ill-health have benefitted from our music and health NHS programme over the last 15 years.
