Come and Play with the Halle

On Wednesday 21st June, Year Five travelled to Derby Arena to play their ukuleles alongside the prestigious Halle orchestra. The children listened to a wonderful performance of many well-known pieces including the 'Indiana Jones' and 'Harry Potter' themes. They also recognised Prokofiev's 'Romeo and Juliet: The Montagues and Capulets' and Tchaikovsky's '1812 Overture' where they enjoyed participating with the sounds of cannonballs. A particular highlight for many was when the Halle used their fidget spinners to perform a percussive piece. Who knew they could be used for such a purpose! The children also sang two songs they had learned with Mrs Charles and Miss Rynott and joined in alongside the orchestra on their ukuleles for the popular piece, 'Tequila' and the 'Cuckoo Polka' composed by J. Strauss.


Short clips of the performances will hopefully follow soon!
