After a hot and energetic sports day, nearly 40 intrepid STAC musicians changed into their uniforms and travelled to Bold Tendencies in Peckham, home of the Multi Story Orchestra. The event was the culmination of a collaboration between the professional orchestra and STAC, which has seen our own musicians perform and rehearse alongside some of the finest London professionals. The experience was a positive one for all involved, and our boys were praised for their professionalism and maturity throughout the project. I was proud to hear from Kate Whitley, the artistic director of the orchestra, that the students’ standards are noticeably improving year on year, with some students returning this year for the third time. We hugely value this local community collaboration, and hope to undertake an even more ambitious project next year!
