The Hallé Orchestra, one of the world’s most famous symphony orchestras, were joined by 650 young instrumentalists from Darlington primary schools including 5 children from our school, to perform this afternoon at the Dolphin Centre. The concert featured a diverse repertoire including music by Bernstein, Barber, Quincy Jones and the Star Wars theme. It was the culmination of a three-year partnership between Durham Music Service (Durham & Darlington Music Hub) and The Hallé, co-produced with Orchestras Live.
Not to be left out, the rest of school watched the live stream of the concert after House Team Assembly.
Many thanks to Mr Allfree and everyone from the Durham Music Service for working so hard to give all the children this unique experience.
