Every Child a Musician Stars Orchestra and Choir (ESOC)

The ECaM Stars Orchestra and Choir (ESOC) was formed in 2013 and is made up of children from various schools across Newham. ESOC have performed at various events across the borough such as the Holocaust Memorial Event, the Mayor's Newham Town Show and the Under the Stars Music Festival. 

In more recent years, the orchestra and choir have worked hard to perform in prestigious venues such as the Barbican, the House of Lords and at the Tower of London.

Children that have been part of the ESOC Orchestra and Choir develop their musical skills dramatically compared with those that only undertake traditional ECAM school lessons. We also find that their skills in other subject areas and their overall confidence improves as a result of learning music with ESOC. 

We welcome children of all ages to the ECAM Stars Orchestra as long as they are a resident in Newham and have had at least 1 years' music tuition with ECaM. Children who are enthusiastic about singing are welcome to join the Choir at any point in their musical learning.

ESOC rehearsals are held on a weekly basis, every Tuesday during term time only. We meet at Grassroots Community Centre, Memorial Park, Memorial Avenue, West Ham, E15 3DB between 4.30pm to 6.30pm.
