National Orchestra For All "Music in the Making"
Year 7 students recently took part in a unique programme that gives students the opportunity to develop ensemble music making.
Nine Year 7 students performed with a 32 piece orchestra at the Belgrade Theatre and a 120 piece Symphony Orchestra at the at Cecil Sharpe house in London. They performed pieces by Haydn, Shostakovich, Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story.
With months of dedication, commitment and practising during lessons as well as in their own time, these students proved more than worthy to play on a World Class Level.
London Live TV filmed the performance:
