We are very excited to announce that there is a new project to create an orchestra at Brunswick Park Primary School
This is a unique project for the young people of Brunswick Park from diverse cultural backgrounds to work together in a socially and musically inclusive ensemble, creating the ECCO Orion (Ethnic Contemporary Classical Orchestra).
The orchestra will rehearse each week on Wednesdays after school from 3.15 to 5.00pm starting from 23rd September. There will be additional events and performances in the future, including joint activities with other ECCO orchestras across London.
We are looking for a group of children from years 3-6 to be the core members of this orchestra. We expect these children to be very enthusiastic about making music together, and show commitment to the project by attending the rehearsals every week and by practising the music between rehearsals. The orchestra will have very high expectations in terms of behaviour, responsibility and attitude, and in particular to working together to make the ECCO Brunswick Park an exceptional and exciting music group.
If you are interested in becoming a member of this new orchestra please complete the attached slip and return it to the school office by Wednesday 16th September.
We have 16 children that have been part of the group since September, but we are now in a position to offer further places to children in Year 4 that have been demonstrating a real aptitude and positive commitment to their instrumental lessons. Your child has been identified as someone that would really benefit from these additional after school sessions whilst also adding to the existing group.
