Ground-breaking education projects
In April 1997 he conducted a unique performance with London Musici at the Royal Albert Hall, the culmination of an 18-month music education project across ten London boroughs in youth clubs. The Miracles Project (principle sponsors: Singer & Friedlander and Arts & Business) was reviewed by The Times as 'one of the most positive stories in the arts'. It won numerous national awards and was televised by London Weekend Television. In 1998 he undertook a four-year residency at The London College of Music & Media, Thames Valley University. Supported by The Paul Hamlyn Foundation and The Arts Council. Student-led projects included Music & Media Graduation Shows at both The Department of Education and The British Museum. In 2002 he directed the KPMG Music in the Community Awards and he showcased another KPMG project Let's Make A Concert at its London HQ on 4 July 2005.

Taking performances into different spaces
Following a concert in the atrium at the London offices of leading law firm Clifford Chance in 1999 Mark Stephenson launched Live Music in Atria, which has incorporated performances across London including offices, hospitals, banks and shopping centres. He is currently in discussions with one of the major London orchestras, the architects Hamiltons, acousticians ARUP and staging company ES about commissioning a 'state of the art' portable orchestral enclosure to tour spectacular outdoor and indoor locations.

Volunteer
In 2001 he volunteered to visit Mostar, Bosnia with members of the LSO and composer Nigel Osborne to help re-build the musical life of the war torn city.
