The year 7’s have embarked on a really exciting project with James Redwood, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Brent Music Service that is taking place during the Summer term.
Students attended launch events on Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th April which involved starting to learn the project song and body percussion and listening to an octet of musicians from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
James Redwood returned to school with some of the musicians on Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th April to lead workshops with 6 of the year 7 forms. The project has a theme of Romeo and Juliet/West Side Story. During the project students will learn and perform the project song Star crossed lovers, body percussion for the piece Mambo Time and each class will undertake a creative composition project. The classes will perform with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra musicians later on in the term.
