Welsh National Opera Schools Concert

On the afternoon of Tuesday 13 November, Year Five and Six travelled to the Birmingham Hippodrome with Mrs McCabe and Mr Allen to watch a Welsh National Opera Schools Concert.

The children were treated to performances from both Opera singers as well as an full orchestra. They heard Queen of the Night aria from Mozart’s Magic Flute, Habanera from Bizet’s Carmen and even got to join in with the chorus of the Toreador’s song, also from Carmen.

The orchestra performed The Ox Cart from Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, Flight of the Bumble Bee, Hedwig’s Theme from the Harry Potter Movies as well as the theme from Jurassic Park.

A real feature of the concert was listening to the Rossini’s Cat Duet.
