Lyndon School arranges trip to see the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra
All Year 7 students at Lyndon School recently had the opportunity to see the wonderful City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra perform “Natural World” at the Symphony Hall. In this hour-long concert for schools, specially devised for students in Key Stage 3, conductor Michael Seal, presenter Tom Redmond and the world-class musicians of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra take students on a journey exploring the Natural World – including performances of works by Sibelius, Stravinsky, Smetana and Boulanger. All Year 7 students at Lyndon School had just finished learning about instruments of the orchestra in their music lessons so the trip was perfectly timed to allow them to consolidate their knowledge through a live performance.
Mr Abid Butt, Principal said:
“I want to say a big thank you to Stuart Byrnie and Services for Education, the Scops Arts
Trust, Deloitte, the CBSO Corporate Supporter of Schools Concerts, all those who have contributed to the CBSO’s public appeal and the Clive & Sylvia Richards Charity for helping to give students this fantastic experience as, for some students, this could be the only time in their lives to experience this.”
