Baroque Orchestra Workshop

Published on 25/09/19

Hethersett Academy welcomes the Brook Street Band to perform to year 7 cohort.

On Friday 20th September we welcomed members of the Brook Street Band, a chamber orchestra specialising in Baroque music, to give a performance of Handel and Purcell to our Year 7 cohort. 

Following this the academy's own orchestra spent the morning workshopping a number of pieces from the period repertoire including Purcell's Rondeau from Abdelazer, and selections from Handel's Water Music.

Students appreciated the opportunity to work with our visiting experts and even had a chance to play a real harpsichord. Students were also offered the chance to see the Brook Street Band's upcoming concert free of charge.

A big thank you to everyone involved for giving the students this wonderful opportunity.
