Over 40 pupils from St Bartholomew’s CE Primary School, Stourport, were truly inspired to develop their musical appreciation at the British Police Symphony Orchestra’s matinee concert at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall on Saturday 7th December.
In association with the Derek Fradgley Memorial Fund, set up with performances from British Police Orchestra members, members of friends of the British Police Smyphony Orchestra, pupils took part in an entertaining interactive workshop in school before attending the Saturday concert entitled ‘PC Danny’s Greatest Case’.
St Bartholomew’s Primary actively promotes music across the school and was awarded the Severn Arts Music Mark in September in recognition of its commitment to providing high quality music education for all children and young people.
Ian James, Headteacher, said;
“We are extremely grateful to former Police Chief Constable, Paul West, members of the Worcestershire Symphony Orchestra, members of the British Police Symphony Orchestra and the Derek Fragley Memorial Fund, for providing our pupils at St Bartholomew’s with many fantastic musical opportunities. This includes interactive workshops, financial support for the development of music provision and tickets and transport to special venues and concerts. Many of our children have been inspired to learn new instruments and are highly motivated to continue.”
