On Friday 8th June, 28 students took part in a concert involving all of the Ninestiles Trust schools, along with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. The concert was the final product of several rehearsals where the students composed their own music to accompany a series of pictures, based upon Mussorgsky’s ‘Pictures at an Exhibition”.
Ninestiles students were given the task of depicting the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. Their piece contained musical representations of the bandstand at the gardens, children playing games, people enjoying picnics on the grass and an ice cream van!
Students thoroughly enjoyed performing at Symphony Hall alongside the CBSO, and were pleased with the results of their hard work. They also very much enjoyed hearing the Primary Schools’ song about Gary the mischievous gnome!”
