Romany Wood, a model for partnership work in music?

Music at King Edward's School, Birmingham: Romany Wood at Symphony Hall

The Schools Together Group has just published the first in a series of publications on ‘Partnerships in Practice,’ edited by Tom Arbuthnott with Peter Hatch. This focuses on music partnerships, and aims to set out a series of case studies, ranging from the simple to the complex, that might help Directors of Music and Partnership Co-ordinators in state and independent schools to learn from better practice in devising music partnership projects.

Two projects based at King Edward’s School and King Edward’s High School for Girls are included, Romany Wood, and the swing band tours.

Margaret Cookhorn on BBC Radio 3

Music at King Edward's Music, Birmingham: BBC Inside Music

Inside Music
Saturday, 12 May at 1300 on BBC Radio 3

A new series in which each week a musician reveals a selection of music – from the inside.

Today, bassoonist and principal contrabassoonist of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and woodwind tutor at King Edward’s School, Margaret Cookhorn shares her excitement about a rare experience – playing the contrabassoon in chamber music by Mozart. She also analyses how Richard Strauss brings exotic flavours to the orchestra in his take on Salome’s Dance of the Seven Veils, and explains her fascination for patterns in the music of Benjamin Britten. Margaret’s choices range from a miniature by Elgar played by violinist Nigel Kennedy to part of Messiaen’s massive Turangalila Symphony, plus vocal acrobatics from Ella Fitzgerald and Bobby McFerrin.

At 2 o’clock Margaret introduces her Must Listen piece – something she thinks everyone should hear at least once in their life – as she says: “it contains one of the most exciting and rhythmic endings to a symphony ever written”.
