Birmingham Symphony Hall and Art Gallery / Museum
Class 3 at Needwood and class 4 at Rangemore had a truly fantastic day visiting Birmingham. They thoroughly enjoyed the concert at the Symphony Hall which used the full CBSO and music by Mendelssohn, Britten, Walton and Prokofiev to explore how composers down the centuries have let Shakespeare’s poetry ignite their imagination, this included songs from the Lion King, West Side Story and the theme tune to 'The Apprentice' originally written by Prokofiev for Romeo and Juliet! The also sketched in the square and visited to the Museum and art gallery where they explored many exhibits ranging from ancient cultures to the history of Birmingham's people. It was a fabulous day.
