Designed especially for a KS1 audience, this 1-hour presented concert, features an ensemble of fourteen musicians from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.  Performing a fun programme consisting of film music, this concert will showcase the instruments of the orchestra and explore how musicians and composers have stretched the boundaries of music for film. The concert will also showcase a participatory song co-created with students from Somerset.

The performance will support the KS1 area of the curriculum and will give children a valuable concert experience, taking them on a musical journey through cinematic history, from the well-known to lesser known works, and from London’s West End classics to big Hollywood blockbusters.

This concert will be preceded by a  CPD session, which will take place on Tuesday 6th February between 4.30-6pm at Westlands, Yeovil. Schools attending the concerts, are invited to send staff members to the session to learn the participatory song and other tips and tricks for the classroom. Please note, there will be a £25 per attendee for the CPD.
