Shropshire Music Service hosts Orchestra Workshop

Last week, the Music Department was thrilled to host our first orchestra event since Covid!

We welcomed Alan Atkin from the Shropshire Music Service into school, who led the workshop with students with a range of instrumental abilities from Year 7 through to Sixth Form which included learning 3 pieces of music that had been arranged for our ensemble and one piece which had been specially composed for us.

Our students learnt a great deal from the experience, from Alan’s expertise as a musical director; being able to collaborate with one another and play as an ensemble for the first time in two and a half years and for some students, for the first time.

OWS Orchestra has re-launched!  We will now be rehearsing every other Friday after school until 4.30pm.

Well done and thank you to everyone who was involved.
