Orchestral Workshop With Crackley Hall School

18 Mar

Crescent School welcomed pupils from fellow Foundation Prep school Crackley Hall on Tuesday 12 March, to take part in an orchestral workshop.

Designed to develop and stretch music and performance skills, pupils worked under the guidance of Crescent’s Director of Music, Julie Barnes, to prepare and rehearse a mixture of pieces ready for an afternoon performance.

The children relished making music, especially in such a big group. They worked hard to prepare three challenging pieces, including Yesterday by The Beatles, Chariots Of Fire by Vangelis and In The Mood by Glenn Miller, all three pieces testing the players’ technical and music-reading ability.

The day finished with a short concert for parents where four soloists also showcased their musical skills. For Crescent, Hattie, Year 6, played Hedwig's Theme from the film Harry Potter on trombone while Patrick, from Year 5, played He's A Pirate from Pirates of the Carribean on flute.

The workshop was a great opportunity for them all to play together, thank you Crackley Hall School for an excellent day.
