Recently KS2 were lucky to receive a visit from the New Mozart Orchestra who performed a very enjoyable and high quality concert for us. The concert celebrated the links that exist between the UK and America and which have recently been in the news following the engagement of Prince Harry and Megan Markle. In addition to the special experience of hearing and witnessing a live orchestra, the professional musicians demonstrated the sound production from different members of the instrument "families" and showed how these instrument families could describe different moods in music.
During the concert, some of our talented musicians had been practicing specially written parts and gained a unique and exciting experience of playing and performing with the orchestra.
We will be following up the concert with workshop sessions provided by the musicians for some year groups.
