Peter and the Wolf – Exploring music through stories

It was a huge pleasure to welcome the representatives from Bournville Junior School, Brownmead Primary Academy, Elms Farm Primary, Hillstone School, Hallmoor and the Oval schools.

A special thank you to Keith Farr who led the inspirational workshop about music composition through myths and folk tales. We hope that it will be a great stimulus for all involved.
