Newham Philharmonic is the new orchestra for young Londoners. With coaching from professional musicians and under the baton of James Ham, the orchestra will explore everything from the great masterpieces of orchestral repertoire to new commissions.

The second course will take place from 26-29 October 2016 culminating in a performance at Kings Place on 29 October 2016. Repertoire will include Beethoven Symphony 6 and two concertos.

Key dates:

26, 27, 28 October 2016: Course at Lister Community School
