Pro Corda is the only youth music organisation in the UK providing a continuous and progressive programme of education through the medium of chamber music and ensemble training from ages 5 to 24. Pro Corda’s home and administrative base is at Leiston Abbey but it offers national provision and opportunity across the country. All of Pro Corda's courses employ leading international artists and musicians at the forefront of their fields.
In addition to “core” courses for talented young musicians, accessible only through audition, Pro Corda has pioneered an innovative life-changing course for children with Special Educational Needs, using the power of ensemble training to benefit personal and social progression. This programme serves SEN schools and units across the country.
Pro Corda’s work employs a holistic approach and is based on the core principles of ensemble training, the person and his/her social interaction as well as the musician. Our central mission is to unleash the wider social benefits of chamber music in terms of participation, access and learning.
Pro Corda has a passionate belief in equality of access and opportunity in the arts. Our aim is to assist all young people to access, experience, and participate in the highest quality professional performances and music making opportunities.
Pro Corda hosts a wide variety of concerts and events throughout the year at Leiston Abbey. Please see www.procorda.com for further information.
