Music Trip

On Friday 31st January Y11 GCSE music students attended a performance of the GCSE set works at the Victoria Rooms in Bristol. The set works were performed by musicians from Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and the University of Bristol, and included a presentation by Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra's Patrick Bailey who skillfully guided students through the key musical elements of each piece of music and placed them in their historical context. Students were able to hear the main musical themes performed in isolation giving them a greater understanding of how each set work is constructed and provided them with valuable knowledge in preparation for their exam.
