Pupils rehearse with Will Goodchild from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
Last Thursday morning, 28 pupils from St Peter’s C of E Primary School, rehearsed in the School Hall with Will Goodchild the Associate Conductor for the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. They were also joined by four pupils from Lympstone C of E Primary School.
The rehearsal was highly successful as well as being fun. The rehearsal was in preparation for the forthcoming ‘BSO Orchestral Extravaganza’ at the Exeter University Great Hall on the evening of Friday 9th March. This will include a number of ensembles from around Devon and some professional players from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.
The pupils which included brass, percussion, strings and woodwind players performed incredibly well together. Both Will Goodchild and Paul Painter (the Musical Director of the Devon Youth Concert and Symphony Orchestras) commented on their excellent musicianship and discipline.
Thank you to Mr Moger-Taylor and Mrs Eaves for their help during the rehearsal and also thank you to all the peripatetic music teachers who have helped prepare their pupils to be involved in this event.
