Make a Noise music day
Students from Harlands educational trust, Blackthorns primary Academy and a host of prep schools come together to rehearse and perfrom a concert of concert band material from film scores and musicals.
To widen appreciation of and participation in music making and encourage greater collaboration in music between local schools.
We wanted to develop greater musical collaboration with students from local schools. Our Head of Music developed the concept of 'make a noise' day.
Our Music teachers and some instrumental peri teachers are involved with the day and its preperation alos involes some administrative support. We buy sweatshirts for the pupils so that they all feel like part of a single orchestra. We use school facilities and provide lunch.
Very positive feedback from teachers and students.
A range of ages, mostly secondary school level. Boys and girls take part.
Once per year.
