Music Trip in Berlin

08 March 2018

On Wednesday 28th February, members of the Girls' Choir and School Orchestra flew to Berlin to take part in the 9th Branderburg International Music Project. 

They joined together with other schools from Berlin, France, Hungary and Madagascar to create a large choir and orchestra to perform in a concert on Sunday 4th March.  The choir performed five pieces of music, one in each language: English, Hungarian, Latin and German and the other with vocal sounds.  The orchestra performed a newly commissioned work by composer Ruth Gramann who was present to rehearse and conduct the group for the performance.  Working on a new piece with the actual composer was a great experience for our students.

We attended rehearsals on Thursday and Friday evening and all day Saturday and Sunday but there was also time to visit some other areas of Berlin for some non-music activities.  On the Thursday we visited Berlin Zoo and also the famous Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church at Kurfurstendamm which was damaged in WWII.  We were very lucky to be travelling with one of our history experts Miss Statovci who led us on a walking tour on the Friday teaching us about the history of Berlin and pointing out famous places.  

On Saturday evening we attended a wonderful choral concert by AMIS (Association of Music in International Schools) who we are members of.  Over 150 15-21 year olds took to the stage and made an amazing sound.  We are looking forward to being able to join these concerts as participants in the future.  

On Sunday evening we visited the IMAX cinema at Potsdammer Platz and made the popcorn sellers' day with a request for 21 boxes! 

On Monday some of our braver members went to the top of the TV tower whist the rest of us kept our feet firmly on the ground and did some shopping at Alexanderplatz before flying home. 

Everyone had a wonderful time and we are looking forward to going again next year to celebrate their 10th anniversary.
