Leonardo & His Flying Machines - Schools' Concert
The Schools’ Concert is a creative project for local primary schools, during which the children learn and/or devise a piece that they perform during the Festival.
Building on a successful collaboration with St Paul’s School and the Rodolfus Foundation, in 2019 we continue with a project based on the current theme: ‘Music and Invention’.
During workshops in the Autumn term, led by Mark Wilderspin, Director of Music at St Paul’s School for Boys, the children have come up with musical ideas based on aspects of Leonardo’s life and on the idea of flying. Their ideas have been arranged by Mark into a new commission.The children will perform this and other flying related pieces, along with St Paul’s Choir and members of the Rodolfus Choir.
All proceeds from this event support the Festival's Youth Programme
