''The comments received from pupils,staff, parents and Grandparents are all full of praise for the day.The music added another dimension and was hauntingly and beautifully poignant. The workshops were greatly enjoyed and the pitch of educating and entertaining the children was excellent''.

Education is at the core of what the Chamber Music @ Festival is about and aims to achieve. It reflects its founding principal of developing participation, knowledge, enjoyment and interest in classical music.

The Chamber Music @ Worcester Festival has an extensive and imaginative education policy delivered by the Astaria String Quartet. It not only offers a variety of workshops in the community for schools   - both at primary and secondary levels as well as within the context of adult education - but also Morning Masterclasses for violinists and 'cellists of all ages, delivered in-house at Claines Church Worcester, during the Festival itself.

Enquiries are welcomed from all areas of the education sector
including schools, music services, universities and individual instrumentalists as well as adult learners. All of our programmes can be individually tailored to compliment or run concurrently with any ongoing delivery of the music curriculum.

Please click on the 'Morning Masterclasses' or 'Workshops for Schools & Adult Education' tabs above, to explore these options in more detail, including ways to to book or contact the festival for further information.
