The St George’s Prize for Music is given in recognition and celebration of groups or individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to music making within their local community.
We are delighted that the ‘Bristol Ensemble Preludes Team’ is the first group to receive the St George’s Prize for Music.
‘Preludes’ is a bold and innovative music project that has been running successfully for four years in two primary schools in South Bristol (Ilminster Avenue E-Act Academy and Merchants Academy). Its aim is to put classical music at the heart of every child’s education and by doing so improve confidence, co-ordination, speech and language and benefit all other areas of their learning. ‘Preludes’ is delivered by a growing team of dedicated professionals. It is managed and led by Penny Rawlings assisted by Charlie Groves and Helen Stanley.
We are very grateful to everyone at St George’s Bristol for recognising the project in this way.
