Orchestra Outreach At Balerno and Craigroyston

We’ve had a lot of fun over the last few weeks visiting High Schools for our orchestra courses. The challenge in these workshops has been to collaboratively compose a piece of music for orchestra in 2 hours. The aim is that the piece will be interesting but also simple enough to be played by beginners. We started with improvising rhythms and used these to develop melodies and then bunged it all together to see what would happen. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and some great musical ideas came out of it.

Here’s Jed interviewing Tessa Martin of Craigroyston High and Maree Anderson at Balerno about the workshops.
