Orchestra Day7th 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:
Newton Abbot College
Canada Hill 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.
