Trinity Laban has announced its programme of Schools Concerts for 2016/17.
Our Schools’ Concerts (for KS2 – 5) give pupils the opportunity to experience classical music, performed live and up close, at venues across London. The concerts are performed by students from Trinity Laban and presented by a professional music specialist, providing an interactive journey through a range of curriculum set works and other pieces.
The first concert will be on 4 November at Blackheath Halls, and is aimed specifically at GCSE, AS and A2 (KS4/5) students. Presented by Patrick Bailey and performed by Trinity Laban’s Saxophone Ensemble, the concert will include an exploration of compositional techniques in Terry Riley’s famous In C, a minimalist masterpiece heralded for ushering in a new musical era.
The concert will enable students to develop their own musical ideas and analytical skills, and take them back to the classroom.
There will be three additional concerts next year, including an exploration presentation of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring – one of the most influential and important pieces of music from the 20th Century – performed by the Trinity Laban Symphony Orchestra.
