Penrice Orchestra Study Ten Pieces

Last week, musicians from Senior and Junior Orchestra were taken to the cinema to see the BBC film Ten Pieces. This film shows the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra performing the Ten Pieces and interviews with the musicians involved. 

Students at Penrice will be learning Habanera from Bizet’s Carmen, plus one more piece of their choice. Mr Jones said: “I’m really excited to be working with the students on this project. Habanera is a great piece with lots of room for very expressive, musical playing. I’m sure the students will gain a great deal by learning to play it.”

Look out for a Penrice performance of Habanera coming soon!

Junior Orchestra is for beginners to Grade 3. Senior Orchestra is for Grade 4 +.
