A Clas­sic Night Out.

NIgel200Yr 10 stu­dents study­ing BTEC Music enjoyed an evening of cul­ture at The Mar­lowe The­atre as they watched The Phil­har­mo­nia Orches­tra per­form Cop­lands ‘Fan­fare for the Com­mon Man’, Korn­golds ‘Vio­lin Con­certo’ fea­tur­ing Elena Urioste who was stag­ger­ingly bril­liant, and Dvo­raks ‘Sym­phony No.9 from the New World’. This not only pro­vided a won­der­ful evenings enter­tain­ment (fol­lowed by a tasty stop off at KFC on the way home) but also gave the stu­dents an oppor­tu­nity to expe­ri­ence first-​hand a very dif­fer­ent music genre, con­sider the set up of a music venue for such a gig and wit­ness how per­form­ers develop stage pres­ence in order to engage with their audi­ence — which all forms part of their KS4 stud­ies. It was a fab­u­lous night with many of the stu­dents pleas­antly sur­prised as to how much they enjoyed the expe­ri­ence of see­ing a full orches­tra play­ing pieces of music they vaguely recog­nised in places, and also great to hear some won­der­ful con­ver­sa­tions between our stu­dents and some much older mem­bers of the pub­lic sit­ting around us quite intrigued at such a young group attend­ing such a con­cert — exem­plary ambas­sadors for the school.
