A new whole school orchestra!
Seizing a chance to create a cross-year whole school Orchestra for the first time this academic year, seventy young string, wind, brass and percussion players came together to produce and record an arrangement of Delia Derbyshire’s ‘Theme from Dr Who’. We felt this particularly pertinent to celebrate the work of this largely unsung female composer during Women’s History month 2021.
Working remotely under the expert guidance of Mr Hayward (Head of Music), our young musicians entered into the ‘out of this world’ spirit of the TV show; rehearsing, producing and filming audio, video and ultimately creating a full performance from the confines of their own homes.
Everyone involved has learned valuable new skills, and proved that, with clever use of technology, even the joy of large-scale ensemble music making is possible under lockdown.
