Orchestral Treat at Symphony Hall


On Tuesday 30th Jan Year 7 students travelled en-masse to Symphony Hall, Birmingham, in order to hear a specially programmed concert by the CBSO. They were introduced to sections of the orchestra one by one and were taken on a journey through the standard history of music. Lots of connections were made between the buildings in Birmingham and time scales e.g. Town Hall built during 1700’s/ Mozart era. The concert included performances of favourites including Shostakovich Symphony no. 5 4th mov and Vivaldi’s Winter from the Four Seasons.
