This week’s video, our final video of term, features Christine, who runs our brass workshops. She shows us how the French Horn works, and then plays all four parts to the hunting horn music from the ballet Giselle. Have you ever heard four horns play together before?
Many of our schools will recognise this week’s musician – it’s Lucy, one of our workshop leaders. She plays a Spanish Dance called Rondalla Aragonaisa. Listen out for all the special tricks Lucy does on her violin!
This week we are absolutely thrilled to be sharing this video from our Associate Artist, Roderick Williams, which he very kindly recorded specially for all the children we’ve been working with this year. We are hugely grateful to Roderick for this lovely message, incredible performance, and for his ongoing support of our work. Enjoy!
Here is the second video in our Apollo At Home series, featuring Diana on the viola. This piece was written specially for Diana by her friend the American composer Michael Alec Rose. As Diana explains, it is inspired by a specific animal… the goat!
