Peter and the Wolf: pupils hard at work

Music at King Edward's School, Birmingham -- Peter and the Wolf


Music at King Edward's School, Birmingham: Peter and the Wolf

Peter & the Wolf: Bourville and Tiverton Primary Schools

Pupils at Bourville and Tiverton Primary schools are working very hard on their composition pieces to be performed on 5 February at the Ruddock Hall.

This is just the taster of the musical soundscape they created. We are all very excited to hear their live performance!

 

Peter and the Wolf and The Firebird

 


Peter & the Wolf and the Firebird
The Ruddock Hall
1800, Tuesday, 5 February 2019

There’s a very special event at King Edward’s next week. At 1800 on Tuesday, 5 February, KES/KEHS Symphony Orchestra will perform Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, followed by the 1919 suite from Stravinsky’s Firebird.

Both works are highly colourful, paint vivid pictures of characters, tell stories of the imagination. Capitalising on this, we have invited James Mayhew, author, illustrator, and artist, to perform with us. He will narrate Peter, and, at the same time, paint pictures of the stories live with the music. It’s hard to describe, but, once seen, it’s an extra-ordinary experience, quite impossible to forget.

The performance lasts only for an hour, and the early start means that it’s a perfect evening for children of all ages.

Tickets, priced £5, are available at:

https://www.ruddockpac.co.uk

If you would like to come straight from school to the Ruddock Hall, we offer a children’s picnic tea at 1715. The combined price for tea and concert is £8.50.

It’s going to be a really special evening.
