Orchestra Up Close

Year 1 had a fantastic trip to the Cochrane Theatre to see the Orchestra Up Close!  Before the visit, they had a workshop in school with three of the orchestra members.  They learnt all about the story of Peter and the Wolf and had a chance to compose their own song verses for the concert.

At the concert, year 1 joined in with singing songs and helping to tell the story of Peter and the Wolf.  We heard the clarinet being the cat and saw a bassoon up close for the first time, pretending to be Peter’s Grandad.  Year 1 especially enjoyed seeing the percussion section and hearing the horns acting out the part of the wolf!
