OUTREACH EDUCATIONAL WORK
Creative Director, Head of Department & Project Leader
One of Klio’s highlights in her career has been her outreach educational work. Throughout the years she has enjoyed reaching younger audiences in a variety of settings, such as museums, schools, churches and children’s centres.
Specialising in the early years she worked extensively as an Early Years Project Leader for Trinity Laban's outreach program ‘Raising the Roof’ and has led successfully for many years the early years department at Blackheath Conservatoire.
She toured for Bach to Baby with pianist Grace Mo and together with soprano Mairead Sheerin they devised and produced a special series of narrated classical concerts - The Nutcracker, Alice in Wonderland , Aesops’ Fables - bringing together music and story telling as a means of introducing classical music from a very young age.
From 2017 till 2023 she worked as touring musician with her various ensembles for Classical Music Rocks, a Charity based in West Norfolk, bringing high quality classical music to schools and the wider community in West Norfolk. From 2019 till 2023 she worked as CMR's Creative Director and alongside the Chair she helped develop and expand the Charity’s programme.
"Klio and Grace were were truly inspiring, the children expressed amazement at the powerful nature of the music as it transported them through the story of the Nutcracker.'" CMR Tour
"Klio and Giulia took our little girls on a magical journey through the story of the Nutcracker, interwoven with some of Tchaikovsky's most iconic compositions from the work. It was 45 minutes of make-believe and imagination, and we loved the expressive, engaging style in which Klio and Giulia told the story whilst at the same time showing off their technical prowess on their instruments. A highly recommended show.” James Allen’s Girls School
"A magical performance that enchanted grown ups and little ones alike" Blackheath Conservatoire
