Inspire your students with a live concert experience
This concert is now sold out.
Do you know your concerto from your symphony? Ever wondered how orchestral composers use folk music in their work? Can you spot a leitmotif?
To find out, join the London Philharmonic Orchestra for our GCSE BrightSparks concert on Thursday 23 November, where we will explore a dazzling array of orchestral repertoire from the Classical period to the 21st century.
Presenter Rachel Leach will guide the audience through detailed musical analysis, with quizzes interspersed throughout. Through this, students will sharpen their listening skills and put their learning into practice while experiencing the impact of hearing a live orchestra.
The programme includes iconic music by Beethoven and other classical composers, including the third movement of Mozart’s Horn Concerto no.4 (CCEA, Edexcel, AQA, OCR). The LPO will also perform music by Copland (AQA), Wallen, film music by Shore, Barry and Zimmer (all exam boards) and cover themes and keywords linked to GCSE music learning.
With a broad range of music included, this concert is also suitable for Year 9 students considering starting Music GCSE next year.
Tickets are £3 for students, free for accompanying adults, and include free resources for teachers.
