Over the past few weeks Year 5 have been involved in a musical project run by Halle Education. This project was based around Mendlessohn's Italian Symphony. The project involved Year 5 working with a musician from the Halle Orchestra and a Music Student from Manchester University. Together, they created their own musical composition based upon the second movement, taken from the symphony. The children thoroughly enjoyed this project and the visit to the Bridgewater Hall was a great experience for them.
Last night, the children performed their composition in a culmination concert at Altrincham College of Arts with other schools who were also involved in the project. We are extremely proud of the children and all their hard work they have put into this project. It was a great night and one in which our student shone. Alex, the conductor, really impressed the director of Halle Education.
