Gold for Connected Communities Project in Falmouth


The Online Orchestra project, run by Dr Michael Rolfe at Falmouth University, has won first prize at an international education awards in the USA. They were awarded gold for the arts and humanities category and silver for the European regional area category at the Reimagine Education Awards in Philadelphia.

The project explores the ways in which the internet can give children and amateur musicians living in remote communities the same opportunities to play in an orchestra as those who are in larger towns and cities.

This is a fantastic achievement, and a recognition of the success of the project.
