Passmores students take on the classics with music hub

Education: Secondary / Fri 2nd Jun 2017 at 10:52am

PASSMORES Academy Year 9 GCSE music pupils were treated to a morning workshop from Essex Music Hub’s ‘5Live Wind Quintet’ on Friday 26th May.

Trumpet

The morning began with a formal ensemble performance of a number of pieces arranged for quintet (flute, oboe, French horn, clarinet and bassoon) including Dave Brubeck’s ‘Take Five’, ‘Grieg’s ‘Morning’, ‘Vivaldi’s ‘Spring’ from ‘The Four Seasons’ and a Mozart ‘Minuet’.

Students were then treated to an in-depth history of each of the musical instruments in the quintet followed by a musical demonstration of each. After a Q&A session, pupils were then allowed to have a go at all the instruments to see if they could play them!

It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to play some of the more unusual wind instruments of the orchestra such as the contra bassoon, bass clarinet and cor anglais, all with fantastic results! It was a really engaging and fun experience for all.
