Primary School Music
Last Week of Term T1.1 - Visitors Galore!!
We had a very busy musical week before our well earned holiday!
On Monday we welcomed some very special visitors from the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, based in London. Richard Russell, Clarinetist, and Pete Fry, double bassist, offered their time whilst on a tour of South East Asia, which included a special memorial concert for the Late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, held at the Thailand Cultural Centre. They met with some of our clarinet and string players from STA Band to share some insights into their particular instruments, playing and practice techniques, as well as performing for the children. Pete took his huge and wonderful double bass on a tour of our KS1 canteens to entertain the children during lunchtime. This was a great opportunity for the children to listen to the unique timbral sound of the double bass.
