On 12th March, BSB welcomed Juilliard alumni artists violinist Julia Glenn and clarinettist Xiangyu Zhou for the day. Both spent the morning in the Primary Instrumental Programme (PIPs) lessons, coaching the students in Year 4 to 6 who play those instruments. The students had a wonderful time receiving advice from professionals on their instrument as well as seeing them show off a bit with jaw-dropping technique!
In the afternoon, both Julia and Xiangyu performed in an assembly in the theatre for Years 7 and 8. The students had the opportunity to hear lesser known repertoire, as the clarinet and violin normally do not play duets together. For the final piece, Ms. Haley Clark from the Music Department joined them in a trio on the piano. The students loved the performance and had a lot of questions for the artists afterwards.
We would all like to thank Julia and Xiangyu for visiting our school. They had a wonderful day at BSB – please enjoy the pictures!
