Children's Concert

7th February 2019

A group of Key Stage 2 children from Upper Beeding Primary School visited the Worthing Assembly Hall on Thursday 7th February to enjoy some music performed by the Worthing Symphony Orchestra.   This annual event, which was organised by the West Sussex Music Service and was free of charge, included a range of music including the Russian Dance from the Nutcracker,  the ‘Hovis’ music from Dvorak's "New World" Symphony, and the Enigma’ Variations, variations 6,7 &11, Elgar.  


The event was well attended by schools across West Sussex, with just over 700 children.  This is a wonderful opportunity for children to engage with live orchestral music and a trip we are hoping to repeat next year.   


One mum reported the next day that her son was so inspired by what he had heard that he had practised his cello for an hour that evening!  The children are seen here with the conductor, John Gibbons who was celebrating 21 years of conducting the orchestra.
