Y2 BBC Orchestra Workshop

BBC Orchestra Workshop October 1st
 
Class 2 were fortunate enough to be chosen to take part in a Ten Pieces: Connecting the Dots workshop run by the BBC Symphony Orchestra. The workshop was designed to help pupils continue to get creative and enjoy music even in these strange times. We were introduced to Alex – a percussionist from the BBC Symphony Orchestra. His enthusiasm had us all fixated as he showed us several of his instruments including the drums, cymbals, cow bell, gong and vibraslap – to name a few. We watched some footage of the whole orchestra playing together, played a game of guess the instrument and we also then got to ask Alex questions about his job – all via the power of Zoom.  
 
A brilliant and inspiring workshop – thank you Alex.
