A musical Monday with Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra’s Resound Ensemble
On Monday 25 November, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra’s Resound Ensemble visited Treloar’s to take part in workshops with our School Open Orchestra and College Open Orchestra.
The students thoroughly enjoyed performing alongside the BSO Resound musicians. Here are a couple of quotes from them:
“It felt really good and very special to be playing with BSO Resound” – Jamie
“It felt amazing to be playing with the orchestra because it made me believe that I can play any instrument that I want. I can be myself and feel really happy. I never thought in my life I would be able to perform like this because of my disability, but this proves that I can!” – Saskia
“Our daughter loves music and to see her able to play alongside professional musicians is both wonderful and truly inspiring. Without doubt Open Orchestra has been one of the highlights of her time at Treloar’s.” – Parent
Alison Holmes, Participate Coordinator at BSO Resound said:
“It is vital that these young and talented people have the opportunity to perform with, and learn from, Resound. It allows them to see that if they put in the hard work they can achieve so much. Sadly because of their disability they are sometimes told what they can and can’t do but this is a realistic setting and just proves to them that anything really is possible.”
Resound Ensemble will be visiting Treloar’s six times this year to perform with our students, and they will be working toward a joint performance in the summer term.
Please check out our photographs on our Facebook page and a recording of students playing Bach/Gounod Ave Maria and Silent Night will be available soon.
A huge thank you to the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra Resound Ensemble. We look forward to their next visit.
