The Longfleet School Orchestra got off to a great start last week. The orchestra is made up of 40 children from KS2 who have all been selected after showing particular commitment, talent and enthusiasm in their class music and instrumental lessons. We were joined for our first rehearsal by Neil Valentine who is an associate musician with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. We have also had two great after school rehearsals at our regular time of 3.20 - 4.30pm on Wednesdays.
On Tuesday 10th May the orchestra will be rehearsing in the afternoon and parents of children in the orchestra are invited to come and watch them perform a short, informal concert to KS1 at 2.45pm in the school hall. There will be a more formal concert at the end of the summer term when the Longfleet School Orchestra will be joined by members of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. We will notify you of the date of this concert as soon as it has been confirmed.
