Story

Six Marathons in Six days? - Why?

Well, I have an unshakable belief that music is essential to the future health and mental wellbeing of our children and through my Crescendo Run I want to raise the profile of this issue.

Music is a considerable force in developing young people’s minds, feeding them creatively and stimulating their interest in a range of subjects, positively and vibrantly.

Learning instruments is terrific and must be encouraged, but listening to and understanding great music is even more important as it can benefit everyone. This listening can start at a very early age through the school orchestra and that is the aim of Crescendo – to build an orchestra that the whole school community can be proud of.

It’s never too soon to get young people turned on to classical music, they are our future audiences and some of them even our future performers.
