As part of our music curriculum lessons, all pupils in Year 2 have been participating in an orchestra. We have created our own interpretation of John Adams’ composition “A Short Ride in a Fast Machine.” This is in response to a BBC music education project called Ten Pieces. If you want to see and hear the original, and the other nine works, go to bbc.co.uk/tenpieces
Year 2 orchestra performed our version of “A Short Ride in a Fast Machine” at the Music Educators’ Conference at Stadium MK in Bletchley. They opened the conference as special guests, representing the best of Infant music in Milton Keynes. We were very proud that we had been chosen to be ambassadors for our school.
