This morning all the KS2 children were invited to Congleton Town Hall to be entertained by the Harvestehude Symphony Orchestra, from Hamburg. Their conductor, Hanish Shankar, introduced us to all the different sections and instruments in the orchestra. Millie and Geordan were surprised when they played happy birthday to them. We were able to ask the musicians questions and even some of us had a try at conducting. Apparently, the most important part of conducting is schussing your hair! The orchestra played a 15 minute piece by Brahms. It was a great experience.
