Charterhouse pupils give 'music assemblies' at local primary schools, including performance and Q&A sessions. At present, this involves five primaries and has included around a dozen Charterhouse pupils. A similar scheme involves Charterhouse musicians performing in other community settings, such as care and nursing homes.
Music is under threat in many primary schools. The aim of this project is to contribute to a flourishing music programme in our area, whilst also enabling Charterhouse pupils to perform and answer questions about music in a variety of external contexts, not only schools but also care and nursing homes.
