A Busy Weekend!

Last Friday we had a remarkable day at the Musical Brain conference ‘Why Music’ in London. The day was absolutely fascinating and included talks and discussions on whether music was different to the other arts and whether neuroimaging was important for our understanding of aesthetics and our responses to art. The day was rounded off by a beautiful concert by Ian Brown and the Sacconi Quartet. 
On Sunday we were yet again astounded by what can be achieved in a day. We were joined by 106 musicians of all ages and instruments at Hills Road Sixth Form College for a day of Orchestral music making. Led by the charismatic Russell Keable the orchestra made their way through the whole of Mahlers 1st symphony and some of Massanet’s Le Cid. Thank you to everyone who took part on both days for making them such a success.
Pictures to follow.
