Treloar School performs Mahler’s 1st Symphony
Around 60 Treloar School students took part in an incredible performance of the fugue from Mahler’s 1st Symphony.
The fugue is built up of many short musical patterns which is ideal for our students as they could perform one or more of these sections each to create the whole piece.
As you will see it takes immense concentration from our School students to play this moving piece of music – but the results are definitely worth it! We’re keen to make music accessible to all our students, and you’ll see many of them using Clarion technology to play Mahler’s music.
What is Clarion?
Clarion technology is an accessible musical instrument which took the Open Orchestra 8 years to make. It is expressive and can be played with any part of the body, including your head, feet or even your eyes. For many of our students, they use iPads, eye gaze technology or smart navigation to play the instrument.
Using this technology is an inclusive way for our students to express themselves no matter their range of physical movement. Clarion allows them a much greater independence of playing and they can accomplish fantastic performances through it – just like this one you can watch today!
