Please note that this event has ben postponed.
On Tuesday 31st March 2020 we are holding a special after school 'Orchestral Workshop Extravaganza' at The Hinckley Academy, Butt Lane, Hinckley, Leicestershire LE10 1LE for all orchestral instrumentalists from Grade 1 upwards.
We are offering this special opportunity to all talented young musicians in the Hinckley and Bosworth Areas. The workshop extravaganza will be led by Garry Sleath, the Conductor of the Hinckley Area Schools Orchestra supported by the Leicester-Shire Music Education Hub. Extra support from specialist teachers will be present to help engage the learning of the session. All the teaching staff are fully DBS checked.
The Hinckley Area Schools Orchestra, in its previous guise, has played in some fantastic venues over the years, such as Bedworth Civic Hall, Proms in the Park, Belvoir Castle, The Birmingham Symphony Hall, The Royal Festival Hall, and most memorable of all performing the Finale of the Schools Proms to a packed Royal Albert Hall in 2007.
Plan for the Orchestra workshop:
Your young musician will be playing a selection of music including the musical 'Wicked', the lively 'Espana' and of course the ever popular 'Happy'. The rehearsal will give them the chance to practice with help from specialist teachers, and later to show off some of what they've been learning in a performance situation. This is an excellent and enjoyable opportunity for your child to develop their skills playing alongside other young musicians in the local area as part of an ensemble.
The session will run as follows:
3.30pm Registration Please bring your own music stand named, if you have one.
4.00pm - 4.40pm Rehearsal 1
4.40pm- 5.00pm Break- We will have chocolate biscuits!
5.00pm- 5.40pm Rehearsal 2
5.40pm- 6.00pm Performance to parents
If your child really enjoys the free session they will be invited to join the Orchestra on a permanent basis.
