BSO Resound visit Oakdale


On Friday 16th November, Oakdale Junior School were fortunate to welcome BSO Resound to school to perform and then engage in a Q&A session with Year 5 and 6 pupils.

BSO Resound is the world's first disabled-led ensemble as part of a professional Orchestra's main programme of work. Earlier this year they performed at the Royal Albert Hall  as part of the Proms season.

 

BSO Resound performed a number of pieces of music which were really enjoyed by an appreciative audience. Pupils were then able to ask a series of thoughtful questions. Including:

"What emotions do you feel when you perform?"

"Who or what inspired you to learn to play your instrument?"

 

After the Q&A session many pupils were able to speak to the musicians informally and even have a go on some of the instruments. 

 

Staff and pupils found the occasion to be enjoyable, interesting and inspiring.

 

BSO Resound performed:

 

Mozart                 Marriage of Figaro Overture

Beethoven         Moonlight Sonata

Copland               Variations on a Shaker Melody

Mozart                 Flute Quartet No. 1 in D (3rd Movement)

Bach                      Orchestral Suite No. 2 (2nd Movement)
