Scottish Chamber Orchestra Visit

SCO

On Wednesday 1st October a group of students from the Music Department attended a concert given by the SCO at the Queen’s Hall. They listened to a presentation, which highlighted many musical concepts, given by Paul Rissman and then a piece of music called “Arktis, Arktis” by a Sweedish composer called Karin Rehnqvist.

This was preceded by a workshop given by two members of the SCO, which took place in school the week before. Students taking part were able to find out how this piece of music was composed and what had inspired its creation as the composer was present at the performance.  They were also able to experience the sound of live orchestral music. This was an enjoyable and valuable experience for everyone.
