Out of Essex Massed Ensemble

Out of Essex, funded entirely by ICAP Charity Day with The Classic FM Foundation, brings together over 600 children and young people from 12 schools in the county of Essex to sing together.

Composer Karl Jenkins has written a special piece, which has been further developed by students from some of the participating schools. After gathering in smaller groups over the summer, tonight will see hundreds of young voices come together to perform this huge collaborative piece on a grand scale, giving them all a unique opportunity to perform in one of the UK’s most prestigious concert halls.
