 Visit to the Palace Theatre

On Tuesday 6th February, 65 pupils from Years 5-8 were lucky to secure tickets to go to the Palace Theatre in Redditch, to watch a special performance by the National Youth Jazz Orchestra. The conductor was extremely enthusiastic, knowledgeable and inspiring; he introduced pupils to the different instruments and sections of the orchestra, as well as demonstrating how improvisation blends with the rules of jazz music, to make it a truly individual, creative and exciting genre.

Pupils thoroughly enjoyed the performance and had several opportunities to interact with the orchestra/music on stage. It was truly inspiring to see such a talented group of young people.
