We’ve been very busy in Mid-Wales recently with a special Education Project for school children based on Saint-Saëns Carnival of the Animals. As you may have already read, we’ve enjoyed working alongside Mid Wales Music Trust and Arts Connection to deliver what we believe to be a highly valued educational opportunity across Powys.

You may remember that we announced the project last year as part of our newly refocused Education & Community Programme. You may also remember that we didn’t ask you to donate directly to the project itself, rather by sponsoring our courageous musicians who ran the Cardiff Half Marathon in order to raise the funds needed that make this project a reality.


In alphabetical order, they were:
Alison Boden
Mark Boden
Sophie Gledhill
Matt Hardy
Cai Isfryn
Jason Lewis
Rhys Matthews
Ben Mellefont
Steffan Morris
Adrian Williams

To those musicians, and to those of you who donated, we say Thank You! Without your generosity and goodwill, the children that took part in last week’s workshops and next week’s concerts (and there are hundreds of them!) would not have had the chance to learn new skills or express their creativity through fun, confidence-boosting activities!
