- Explore the Orchestra: a 5-part digital series of free programmes for schools and families
- Composer James Redwood shares works showcasing each section of the orchestra
- Interactive concerts feature body percussion, analysis and a newly-commissioned work
Each week, from Saturday 24 April, a work showcasing the orchestral family is introduced and performed under the baton of Frank Zielhorst: Brass (Britten’s Sea Interludes: Sunday Morning — Sat 24 April); Wind (Carwithen’s Suffolk Morris — Sat 1 May); Strings (Coleridge-Taylor’s Willow Song — Sat 8 May); and Percussion (Copland’s Appalachian Spring Mvt 7 — Sat 15 May).
During each session the audience will learn a new body percussion pattern inspired by the pieces through a newly-commissioned work: James Redwood’s Explore the Orchestra, which has been written for the series.
