Forest at the Empire

21 March 2023

Join us for an evening of live music at “The Most Beautiful Theatre in London” (Hackney Empire), featuring live musical performances from our talented students.





Our fifty strong Symphony Orchestra will perform music by Mussorgsky and Marquez. The Big Band will be joined by guest student vocalists and string orchestration in their performance of jazz standards. Three student soul bands and a pop band will take to the stage to perform a mixture of hits from the past fifty years. For the first time in Forest School history student DJ’s will warm up the audience with a back to back set of eclectic electronic music. The concert will be opened with a bang by our new Samba Band.

This event is in support of the charity Tomorrow’s Warriors. While the event is free of charge, we ask you to consider making a donation to the cause – any amount will make a difference.
