About Crescendo Concerts

About Crescendo Concerts

Sadly, live music in schools is rare nowadays. Children generally have no idea what instruments sound like when played really well, or what they look like. Crescendo Concerts aim to address this! We want to inspire and educate the next generation so they grow up knowing what an oboe looks and sounds like, why the bassoon is amazing and why the french horn is so cool.


Our musicians are passionate about music and are all professional performers. Music, to them, is what makes the world go round. They want to share that passion with everyone, but especially children, to inspire them to enjoy music, maybe learn an instrument, but most of all, to be receptive to all kinds of music.


Crescendo Concerts are directed by Julie Payne. Julie started Music for Miniatures and Crescendo Concerts after finding there were no opportunities for her to take her own children to experience high quality live music in a relatively relaxed atmosphere. Find out more about Julie and her work with schools, community groups and as a performing musician at www.juliepayne.info
