Trinity Laban Symphony Orchestra – breaking down Berlioz for schools

Blackheath Halls hosted a special lunchtime performance of Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique to a group of 80 local KS3 pupils on 4 February 2014.

Trinity Laban’s Learning and Participation team has been collaborating closely with the conservatoire’s music administration on the project. Patrick Bailey, an experienced music animateur and educator, has been working with the orchestra and our Junior Conducting Fellow James Ham to devise the concert. This has offered them a unique insight into how to deliver concerts for a younger age group.

Performing to and devising work for schools and families now forms an important part of most UK orchestras.
