In Harmony Lambeth

In Harmony Lambeth was launched in 2009, inspired by El Sistema, and is a social programme that uses the pursuit of musical excellence to enrich the lives of young musicians and their families in Stockwell. The programme engages with young people from an early age through its immersive programme, to increase their opportunities, introduce them to new ideas and people, and to encourage key social skills to give them more choices.
