Earthsong music schools celebrations
In mid June 2022 hundreds of 5-9 year old musicians came together for the first time to celebrate their music making through singing games and ensemble playing. The children loved the workshops and were really excited to meet fellow musicians from other Bristol primary schools. There were many exuberant volunteers to sing solo lines in the songs and it was wonderful to see their confidence and enjoyment of the music.
Children in Year 3 of the programme came together as a 99 piece orchestra in the beautiful auditorium of St Georges. After a fun workshop, bassoons, cornets, clarinets, oboes, ukuleles and string players performed in public for the first time and really impressed the audience especially with their strong sense of rhythm and feel for the music.
