The show was opened by the Tamil School Karmic band, a fusion of traditional music with electric guitars. Our host, Rachel, involved the audience by clapping out rhythms for them to repeat.
Urban Flames followed, an exceptionally talented group of singer songwriters from Hackney, aged from 13 to 17 years. The first song they performed - “Art of Not Letting Go” was about the experience of being bullied. Each member had a unique vocal style and their harmonious sound and talented musicianship led to an emotional performance.
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra performed, Mars, from the Planet Suite, composed by Holst, audibly illustrated the character of the planet which is brutal and frightening.
More audience participation followed with our host, Rachel, once again clapping out rhythms for the audience to follow.
Bromley Youth Orchestra took us on a musical voyage around the world, ending the show very aptly in London.
All of our pupils enjoyed the visit and we would like to thank all the staff and parents for ensuring our pupils could enjoy this visit to such an exciting venue within our local community.
