A Classical Concert for Kids
Year 4 were inspired by a classical concert with a difference at a relaxed and fun event at Sevenoaks School.
On 26th June, Mrs Flawn took Year 4 to the Kidenza concert at Sevenoaks School to listen to and learn about a full symphony orchestra.
As an introduction to the concert, the musicians from the orchestra gave the children the opportunity to see and hear all the sections of a full symphony orchestra close-up, including 10 percussion instruments.
The children then listened to eight classical pieces including extracts from Beethoven's Symphony No. 5, Holst's Mars from The Planet Suite, Stravinsky's Firebird, Grieg's Hall of the Mountain King and the contemporary Short Ride in a Fast Machine by John Adams.
The children enjoyed the music, which was accompanied by graphics on the big screen, and their behaviour during the afternoon was exemplary.
