140312 Mells (2)Jackdaws Education is the name we give to our branch of Outreach projects. We are delighted that our Education programme moves from strength to strength each year. It continues to grow and encourage more young people into music making than it ever has before through innovative projects such as OperaPLUS, Year of… and Song Story.
