On Wednesday pupils at St Mary’s and St Nicholas primary schools will be treated to a series of mini-concerts given by four of the country’s leading classical musicians.
Libby Burgess, artistic director of the New Paths music festival, will be joined by other festival artists for the lively performances in the schools.
The children will be serenaded by Miss Burgess, one of the foremost piano accompanists in the UK, plus three of her colleagues visiting Beverley especially for the occasion.
Miss Burgess said:
“It is always a joy to be in Beverley.”
“I am very much looking forward to the music-making in St Mary’s and St Nicholas.”
“We’re keen to nurture young audiences and musicians and to give children in Beverley the opportunity to hear live music-making of the highest quality.”
The pupils will hear the sounds of the piano, clarinet, violin and trumpet and will learn more about those instruments in the sessions.
The school visits are being organised by New Paths Music in the run-up to its festival after Easter.
The festival takes place in Beverley from 2nd to 8th April and features over 30 musicians and 40 events, including a number of concerts for children and families.
A highlight of the festival will be the ‘Musical Takeover of the Town’ on Saturday 7th April, an entire day of free musical performances all over Beverley. The day culminates in a Ceilidh at the Memorial Hall.
The festival also includes a holiday singing club for children aged 8-13 and a workshop for young brass players. See www.newpathsmusic.com for more information.
Roland Deller, founder of the festival, who grew up in Beverley said:
“We are proud and excited that world-class music making will be experienced by the children in these two primary schools.”
“We hope to build up relationships with other schools in Beverley in the months and years ahead. Music is for everyone.”
