The National Centre for Early Music (NCEM) and the University of York joined forces with the Orchestra Of The Age Of Enlightenment (OAE) on its new and most ambitious project to date for young people.

Anthem For A Child is part of a national programme of concerts and events.

The partnership provides workshops and coaching days for children from Bootham Junior, Dringhouses, Dunnington and Heworth primary schools; York’s Youth Early Music Ensemble, the Minster Minstrels; and University of York students.

The primary school project culminated in a concert at the University of York.

The University of York Baroque Ensemble and Chamber Choir later joined the OAE in a celebratory public concert at the NCEM to mark the end of the Orchestra’s tour.
