Music Outreach at St Paul's Cathedral

St Paul's music outreach programme is an innovative community engagement initiative which is educating and inspiring children across London through the arts – particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Our ambition

13,000 children engaging with choral and organ music
300 young people with enhanced life chances
1,200 young people with greater confidence and ambition

Our professional musicians run intensive workshops with schools, choirs, and children’s music groups, with many participants having the amazing opportunity of performing at St Paul’s.

St Paul's music outreach programme has a track record of developing self-esteem and aspiration through performance, and by bringing together disparate cultures it fosters mutual understanding and more resilient communities. As well as a singing scheme for London and a project to introduce children to the organ, we run the Hackney Children’s Choir and numerous other creative initiatives.

Following an extremely successful pilot we are seeking to upscale the programme, significantly enhancing its reach and impact.

We hope to increase our music outreach provisions through the new School Development Campaign - Learning in Harmony. Please click here for more information. 

"I believe very deeply that music has the power to change lives, and our interactions with St Paul’s this year have been a huge part of this at Nightingale. I would like to thank your whole team for taking such an innovative and inclusive approach to working with schools."
