Hawthorn Primary School are In Harmony


It’s not every day that a primary school is visited by a Premier League manager and goalkeeper, but that’s exactly what happened at Hawthorn Primary School in Newcastle.

Hawthorn Primary School is situated in one of Newcastle’s most deprived council areas. It was for this reason that they were selected as a school to benefit from the three year In Harmony project. In Harmony is a national project which uses “the power and disciplines of community-based orchestral music-making” to change the lives of children from deprived communities.

‪Sage Gateshead is leading the project, which is funded by the Arts Council England and the Department for Education.

The pupils of Hawthorn Primary School were able to show their new skills to ‪Newcastle United manager, Alan Pardew and goalkeeper, Tim Krul. Pardew said: “It has been an absolute honour to come to Hawthorn Primary School and hear the children perform. The project is truly inspiring and I look forward to hearing more about how the pupils’ music-making develops.”
