Hear the voices of some of those involved and some of those who have benefitted over the years since the first event in 2002:
For more than 20 years, the PP4S programme, presented by the All Souls Orchestra in partnership with LDBS, has been committed to spreading hope and unity through music – empowering educators in cultivating emotional and spiritual intelligence through the use of faith-based story-telling and exuberant, quality current and classical music.
What’s the problem we are addressing?
Music is one of the most powerful universal tools to inspire hope, nurture mental, emotional and spiritual intelligence. In the early part of the 21st century both music and Bible religious education in British primary schools are under pressure. Similarly in Religious Education many teachers lack confidence and resources in teaching RE. Notably, in the midst of Covid19 the wellbeing of both teachers & children has been put under immense pressure and are in need of encouragement.
How does PP4S contribute to the solution?
PP4S is committed to supporting schools by offering quality resources of curriculum, personnel and an opportunity to bring it to life through high quality experience. We come alongside schools, helping them meet the music and religious education curriculum requirements effectively. Above all during Covid19, we are committed to bringing the joy and encouragement that engagement in an imaginative, vivid, creative music experience can bring.
