Hounslow Music Service in London is an exceptional music service in the UK; teaching more than 10,000 pupils ever week in schools across the borough. On 2 March 2020 they are celebrating their hardwork with a huge concert at the Royal Festival Hall on the Southbank.
John Packer Musical Instruments is assisting in the concert by loaning a JP2057 Sousaphone. The instrument will make up the street band that will be performing, along with two massed primary school choirs, a huge brass band, guitar orchestra and Indian dance ensemble.
Alongside lots of familiar tunes, attendees will be able to hear a newly commissioned piece for young string players written by Deborah Pritchard.
The concert also includes a commission for flutes and percussion written by Peter Michael Davison and featuring Gareth McLearnon.
