Devon Family Orchestra with the BBC Concert orchestra

Several Wembury families secured places on the weekend workshop with the BBC Concert Orchestra.

We started with a musical 'snippet' from Beethoven's 5th Symphony - the bit that everyone knows - da da da daaaah, da da da daaaah! -  and, over the two days, developed and extended it into a 6 minute piece.

The final piece was recorded and will be transmitted on Radio 3 in November as part of a programme about 'The Symphony'. 

As soon as we get a transmission date we shall let everyone know so that you can hear the piece. Meanwhile, have a look at these pictures of children and adults who took part.
