Family Concert at Cadogan Hall

Photographs by Nick Rutter

November saw the start of a major new relationship between the ECO and the inspirational author and trumpeter Dan Newell whose illustrated books Billy’s Band: The Bandstand and Billy’s Band: The Jewell Thief have been a huge hit with parents keen to release the natural musical talent of their young children. Dan led the Close Encounters team in Billy’s Band workshops that reached almost 1000 children in primary schools in the London Boroughs of Kensington and Chelsea, Hillingdon and Hammersmith and Fulham and lots of musical fun was also created in the Cadogan Hall foyers prior to the ECO’s Leopold de Rothschild Family Concert.
