At Rhyl we work in partnership with some of the most prestigious music venues in the country. We want to inspire our children to achieve the best and so work in partnership with many musicians and professionals to provide the best possible experiences for our children. We have a busy timetable of outings to interactive concerts throughout the year as well as many visitors who come to perform and play music as well as rund workshops in school for our children.
Children have a weekly music lesson with our music specialist when they learn songs, explore themes from the concert or meet performers.
This year we are working with the following professional organisations:
- Aurora Orchestra (interactive concerts for EYFS)
- Wigmore Hall (interactive concerts Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2)
- Concordia Foundation Young Audiences Project (interactive concerts for Key Stage 2)
- Orchestra of the Age of the Enlightenment (Key Stage 2)
- The Young Person’s Concert Foundation (Key Stage 2)
As well as these outings to world-class venues across the capital our school is regularly visited by guest musicians. These musicians are often students from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama or The Royal Academy of Music. The Royal Academy also has a special relationship with Rhyl Primary School involving special composing projects. Recently our School Orchestra has worked with composer James Redwood and the Year 4 children wrote a short opera with composer John Webb which is being performed at the Royal Albert Hall. Rhyl works closely with Camden Music and we participate in Choir Festivals, Primary bands night, visits to Rhyl and much, much more over the year.
