18 Jun Music Specialist School
On Thursday 18 June Year 7 Music Specialist School Orchestra performed Stravinsky’s Firebird at the Hackney Empire as the finale in the Music First annual concert. Most students in year 7 MSS have only been playing with their orchestra for 7 months and some of them were playing parts of a grade 4-5 standard.
Firebird, written originally by the Russian composer Stravinsky, has been arranged as part of the BBC’s Ten Pieces project, designed to introduce students to classical music. Year 7 MSS also sang an original composition with the Music First choir.
The students were incredibly professional and played with maturity and conviction. Congratulations to all Year 7 MSS students!
