Years 3 and 4 were lucky to attend the Marylebone Music Festival! They watched a performance of Peter and the Wolf by Sergei Prokofiev, played by the Orion Symphony Orchestra Orchestra and conducted by Sue Perkins.
First our Storyteller and Sue introduced us to all the characters in the story. We had to guess which instrument would be used to play them and thought about whether they would make a low or high sound to choose our instruments. Then we listened as the Storyteller told us the story and we listened to the music.
The children all behaved beautifully, especially seeing as this was our first trip in over a year! They animatedly listened to the music, answered questions and shared their favourite parts at the end.
