Eleven Year 7 students from The Skinners’ Kent Academy put on a fantastic show with London Chamber Orchestra at Cadogan Hall in Chelsea.
The group performed a six minute piece of music they had written and composed during a series of workshops with the London Chamber Orchestra and two other local secondary schools – Tonbridge Grammar School and Meadows School. Called, Track to Track, the music is inspired by the train journey from St Pancras Station to the Olympic venue and is part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad Programme.
This is the second year of a three year project, in which students have the opportunity to play new instruments, play with a professional orchestra, compose music and perform at a range of venues from Cadogan Hall to The Queen Elizabeth Hall.
Charlotte Funnell, Year 7, said “It was fun learning to play a new instrument. When I went on stage at Cadogan Hall to perform I felt excited, nervous and proud at all the same time.”
