Acle gets creative with the BBC Symphony Orchestra

On Thursday 18th May, 7 musicians from the BBC Symphony Orchestra came to Acle as part of the Ten Pieces Coaching Scheme.  They spent the day at Acle Primary School encouraging 70 young musicians from Acle Academy and the Cluster Primary Schools.

 

The aim was to build a Cluster orchestra for the day with young musicians working with the BBCSO and the Acle St Edmund Youth Orchestra to develop musicianship skills.   Through large orchestral practices and smaller workshops, the students were able to rehearse two famous classical compositions: ‘Habenera’ from Carmen (Bizet) and part of ‘Night on a Bare Mountain’ (Mussorgsky).   The day finished with a concert performance to parents.

 

It was a once in a life time experience that will be remembered for a very long time.

 

BBC Radio Norfolk and BBC Look East both covered this event.
