Thirty pupils from Upton Junior School attended a Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra concert, ‘Midnight Magic’, at the Lighthouse, Poole. The main aim of this trip was to provide pupils, with varying musical backgrounds, an opportunity to listen critically to different genres of music and gain further confidence in their musical reflections and evaluations. Pupils also got to play alongside the orchestra, performing various vocal melodies, Makaton signs, and percussive rhythms. Great fun was had throughout!
As an unexpected surprise, some of our pupils were lucky enough to have their photo taken with the lead presenter, and award-winning composer, Mr. James Redwood (pictured)!
A big well done to everyone involved and we look forward to repeating this trip next year!
