Up Close with the BBC Philharmonic

Our GCSE and A Level Music students travelled to the BBC Rehearsal Studio at MediaCityUK, Salford Quays, to experience an open rehearsal given by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra.

We heard the orchestra working on Benjamin Britten’s dramatic Sea Interludes from his opera Peter Grimes. The whole session was imaginatively and very engagingly presented by members of the orchestra, for the benefit and engagement of a packed audience of students from secondary schools across the region. It was a riveting, insightful and invigorating glimpse into the life of a professional orchestral musician, as well as a unique opportunity to hear great music performed close-up by an internationally-renowned ensemble.
