Wellington Orchestra Visit

This morning the whole school was treated to a performance from the Wellington Orchestra. They introduced us to all the instruments and made us laugh with their musical antics.

We had a history lesson about the development of instruments through the ages:

First one of the musicians played an animals horn...

and then some played long wooden tubes...

and finally three played on some extremely long pipes with funnels on the end that sounded a bit like trumpets!


We even got to practise our dance moves!

During the performance they introduced us to the main music genres including marching band music, jazz and grunge!

Thank you so much to all the musicians for an entertaining and informative concert!
