Music is for Life 2015 at the Royal Albert Hall

1,500 young musicians from Merton sell out the Royal Albert Hall!

Congratulations have been coming in all day for last night's superb performance at the Royal Albert Hall. The audience witnessed a truly memorable night when 1,500 instrumentalists and singers from Merton schools and Merton Music Foundation gave breath-taking performances to an appreciative and capacity crowd.

Mayor of Merton Councillor Agatha Akyigyina said: “I was very proud to see so many talented young people from Merton up on the world renowned stage at the Royal Albert Hall.  The children sounded amazing. My praise goes to all the young performers and their teachers who have worked so hard to bring the most incredible concert to a huge audience.”
