Orchestra Day

7th February 2020

On Tuesday 4th February, we held an Open Day from the community orchestra we run here at Coombeshead Academy.

This is an opportunity for our local young musicians to meet orchestra and development group members and experience what it is like to be a member of an orchestra.  We worked on 3 pieces of music in instrumental groups and then as an orchestra to present a performance at 2.30pm to parents and teachers.  Pupils from the following schools were involved:

Coombeshead Academy

Newton Abbot College

Chudleigh Primary

Ipplepen Primary

Canada Hill Primary

Rydon Primary

Bradley Barton Primary

Bovey Tracey Primary

Our overall aim to have as many young people learning and developing on orchestral instruments.  We currently have over 40 young musicians who join us every week on developing their instrumental skills by working with our visiting teachers.  These instrumental group lessons are funded by the Devon Education Music Hub, so we can keep developing and building on what is already a successful project.
