Opera North – Sounds of Spring Concert

18 Year 9 students were recently invited to watch Opera North’s ‘Sound of Spring’ Concert at The Howard Assembly Rooms in Leeds. The programme featured a mixture of music that had a focus on story telling. Elements of the music were introduced and explained before each piece was played and this gave them a real connection with the music. It was a fantastic morning for the students, who spent the walk back to school discussing and debating which piece was their favourite. For many students this was the first time they had attended a formal concert and seen an orchestra in real life and the audience was very complimentary about their conduct throughout the performance.

You can listen to pieces that were performed at the concert on the playlist.

Opera North currently have a residency within East Leeds and are offering a number of events across the city. Mount St Mary’s are launching into a new project with Opera North and Leeds City Council this summer.

Here is a playlist of the music from the concert
