The Orchestra for Schools Initiative was officially launched in 2016 featuring 5 schools in Nairobi. In 2017 this expanded and we now teach the Carnegie Hall Link Up recorder curriculum to 14 primary schools across Nairobi, Kiambu and Mombasa; St John’s Primary School, Muthangari Primary School, Farasi Lane Primary School, Huruma Primary School, North Highridge Primary School, St Clare’s Primary, St Catherine’s primary school, Clare Community Centre, Ruben Primary School, Kongo Primary School, Khadija Primary School, Ronald Ngala Primary School, Mikindani Primary School and Likoni Primary School – reaching approximately 1000 students.
At the end of the 1 year teaching programme the students come together in Nairobi and in Mombasa to perform with the The National Youth Orchestra of Kenya (KNYO) for a once in a life time experience.
This year the theme was “Orchestra Sings” featuring the fabulous Doreen Ziegler. Thank you to everyone who made this possible Safaricom Limited KICC Kenya Protel Studios Ltd National Youth Orchestra of Kenya.
