Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra Young Explorers: Sea, Voyages & Hope
A three-week series of workshops to introduce children to making music as:
- they learn to make their own works,
- take part in warm-up exercises,
- rehearse two newly-commissioned nautical songs to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower’s pioneering voyage.
This anniversary was the orchestra's inspiration for the next set of KS2 Schools’ Concerts, which have unfortunately been put on hold for the moment.
The project will culminate in a group (virtual!) performance of the two songs at the end of the Summer term when children can be part of a produced video with everyone singing together!
The workshops are designed to support the Key Stage 2 curriculum, either in schools or for families home schooling, but can be enjoyed by all ages.
Led by BSO Associate Musician Sam Mason and composer James Redwood, the sessions will be available - and free for all - on the BSO's website: . New sessions will be uploaded multiple times a week between 11am Monday 8 June – Friday 26 June ( ).
The BSO are also releasing music education resource packs (also from Monday 8 June) which will help children aged 4-14 to deepen their love of music through a series of prepared activities designed to relieve the burden on teachers and parents during lockdown. Available to all, the activities include learning to make-your-own instrument, exploring pieces through videos performances and talks, curated playlists, and musical cross-curriculum exercises.
