The Music department took 35 students to watch the amazing Halle Orchestra at the Bridgewater Hall today. The concert is one of their Hallé for Youth concerts with a focus this year on The Green Planet.
The concert included opportunities to see a young soloist from the Royal Northern College of Music, scratch and sniff cards to enhance the sensory experience and the opportunity to join in with the songs.
This was a brilliant concert with an opportunity for our students to see world class musicians in one of the country’s best concert halls.
The students were a credit to themselves and the school, with comments from the staff at the hall saying how well they behaved and respected the orchestra and concert.
