Southern Sinfonia

All the school children enjoyed a fabulous performance by the Southern Sinfonia on 23 November 2015. All four sections of an orchestra (strings, woodwind, brass and percussion) were represented in music played from a classical repertoire. The pieces were chosen because they highlighted the different instruments and because they were known to children from TV advertisements or from other sources. In addition, they played songs well known to students such as a movie themes and contemporary pop songs and the children particularly enjoyed these.
