Philharmonia Orchestra Visit

By Support - December 10th, 2019 | Posted in News

On 9th December, we were lucky enough to have guests from Philharmonia Orchestra. They visited Carew Academy with a workshop, as a prelude to the concert in Royal Festival Hall, which our Year 7 Performing Group will attend in February 2020.
They brought some interesting instruments with them such as a bassoon, tuba and trumpet as well as a range of engaging activities. Our young performers had an opportunity to be conductors of little percussion orchestras and use real instruments. They were experiencing creation of music as a group, developing their listening skills and sensitivity for various sounds and volumes. It was a great morning for our students who were very engaged making a great day for themselves and visiting musicians!
