Our orchestra and guitar ensemble took part in a virtual orchestra experience at the Southbank Centre this week. The children ‘stepped into the orchestra’, wearing virtual reality headsets to get the full 360-degree experience of performing their instruments. They then walked around a 35-piece installation of an orchestra playing Holst’s The Planets, where they could isolate and listen to each instrument individually. The events runs until 2 October and is produced by the Philharmonia Orchestra. Click here to find out more about it.
