The BBC Concert Orchestra brings you MusicMix; a free, interactive concert specially designed for Key Stage 3 and years 5 & 6 students, at Theatre Royal Norwich on Tuesday 20 March 2012.
MusicMix performances start at 10.45am or 13.30pm and last 75 minutes.
MusicMix features the BBC Concert Orchestra, and will be presented by Blue Peter’s Helen Skelton and Barney Harwood. The concert will explore the ins and outs of orchestral music from traditional classical by Prokofiev and Stravinsky, to popular TV and film soundtracks. The repertoire is chosen specifically to engage and introduce younger listeners to the vast world of orchestral music.
There will be a big-screen showing live footage of the orchestra and pre-recorded film. All students attending the concert will be able to participate through the group song, Stevie Wonder’s Sir Duke.
MusicMix also features performances from local students and music groups.
How will schools benefit from MusicMix?
Students will participate in a live orchestral event that links directly to KS3 National Curriculum for Music. In particular; performing, critical understanding of music and its wider context, as well as varied musical forms and genres.
Schools who are attending will receive a resource pack sent out in January with study resources and material for classroom music-making.
