This week, all classes were lucky enough to have a surprise visit from the Southampton University Orchestra; we enjoyed listening to very famous music from movies such as: Frozen, Pirates Of The Caribbean and Harry Potter. We are pleased with what they said when they emailed Mrs Gardner after the performance:
“We absolutely loved visiting Beechwood Junior School yesterday afternoon, the orchestra were so impressed with the energy of the children- we haven’t had a group cheer at the announcements of Mussorgsky and Grieg before! Their knowledge of the instruments was outstanding, and very rare for such an age group. During the workshop, all the SUSO players commented on how polite, articulate and keen the children were. They were a real joy to spend the afternoon with and an absolute credit to your school.”
After the show for the school, some lucky Beechwood musicians got to perform alongside the professionals in their own show which was enjoyed by their parents. The pictures show the University and the Beechwood Junior musicians in action!
