Music education stimulates, challenges, and enriches our young people during their formative, school years; its value lasts a lifetime.” Tammy Baldwin
On Thursday 7th March a group of students attended the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestral Schools Concert.
Linking with the British Values section of the national Curriculum, in this concert Alasdair Malloy and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra explored music and society, and how the ‘British Values’ link in with some of our favourite pieces of classical music. There was also a world premiere of a new commission by poet Mandy Ross and composer Tim Jackson.
Our students experienced Liverpool’s world class symphony orchestra live in a fun, educational and interactive concert. They discovered the power of orchestral music through carefully chosen works designed to capture our imagination and to inspire a love of music, with a few surprises thrown in for good measure!
Our pictures show some students in the foyer of the Philharmonic Hall and also some looking at the iconic memorial to the musicians who died on the Titanic, many of whom were from Liverpool.
