From Jane Pincott, Head of Music:
Yesterday we had a second visit from Children’s Musical Adventures. We worked with Patrick and Owen who are both wonderful professional musicians. Patrick is the Timpanist for the Welsh National Opera and Head of Percussion at the Royal Welsh Academy of Music and Owen is an well respected percussion soloist – in fact he was a judge for the BBC Young Musician of the Year. They posted this message on their Facebook page which explains the overview of their work with your boys today.
Each class had a session, improvising sounds that matched the animals they chose to explore. The sounds were remarkable and the boys were excited and skilled in equal measure. I must say a huge thank you to Friends of Squirrels who funded this special musical treat. Their generosity is much appreciated.
