The children in year 5 attended the Cheltenham Music Festival this week. Each school attending had to study a different piece of music, and we studied 'Summer Storm' which is part of Vivaldi's 'Four Seasons'.
Representatives from each school were tasked with taking to the stage to talk about their chosen piece of music. This was delivered with confidence by children from St Mark's and we were extremely proud of them!
The children then enjoyed a selection of live musical performances by Gloucestershire Youth Chamber Orchestra alongside other professional musicians.
They also participated in a Music Explorers session where the children were able to have a go on the orchestral instruments that they had seen and heard in the concert. This included a percussion workshop on rainforest sounds, a string and brass workshop, where the children all got the chance to play a Coronet.
Thank you Year 5 for representing St Mark’s so well! It was such a fantastic morning, and we hope the children have been inspired to make and enjoy music.
