Magnard Ensemble Gallions concert

By | Concert


Cavatina arranged for the Magnard Ensemble to come and join us for a 1 hour Chamber music concert. We chose an audience of Y5 Orchestra students and the children that have additional instrumental lessons. The children were treated to a wonderful classical pieces listening to instruments some had never heard before. They engaged with the ensemble as they performed different songs and talked about their instruments the flute, piccolo, oboe, clarinet and French Horn.


It was a great morning  showing once again not only the power of music but that the children at Gallions can enjoy and be enthralled by classical music.


A massive thank you to Tom and everyone at the Cavatina Trust who made this happen.


Opera Up Close workshops at Gallions

By | Workshops


Last month Opera Up Close took over the Gallions Musicianship room for a day of workshops with our lovely reception children. Opera Up Close are working with Gallions as they continue to develop a new opera for 3-5 year olds based on the Jill Murphy classic “Peace at Last”. Members of the cast and creative team have led workshops alongside Gallions EYFS music lead Aimme Gardner with the children being wowed by the sights and sounds of a Bass clarinet and Harp as well as engaging with Opera singers and the story.

The workshops have been a great success to date and all bodes well for July when the Opera will premier at The Gallions Arts Festival.
