Choir Concert Trip to the Open University

Twelve of our Prep students were invited to attend a lunchtime concert given by the Open University choir on Thursday this week.

The programme included a specially commissioned piece to commemorate Milton Keynes’ 50th birthday – A New Kind of Urban. The composer, Liz Lane, and the lyricist, Judi Moore were at the concert along with Mayor of Milton Keynes.

There were also some much older pieces in the programme, including a piece by Monteverdi who would be celebrating his 450th birthday this year.

The children enjoyed the concert and wanted to share their thoughts:

‘It was a privilege to go to the Open University because the music was inspiring.’ (Maya)

‘The brass was very good and had loud and soft parts.’ (Rohit)

‘The Open University made a brass ensemble and a choir to celebrate 50 years of Milton Keynes, it was very good.’ (Henry)

‘I found it really interesting to listen to a piece about where I live.’ (Damilola)

‘I really enjoyed the older piece by Monteverdi.’ (Alexander)

‘The brass instruments were awesome’ (Emily)

‘I liked the world premiere of ‘A New Kind of Urban’ because the music took you on a journey through MK.’ (Emily)

‘I loved the brass section and the choir, don’t forget the organ!’ (Carolina)

‘My favourite parts were the trombones and the drums.’ (Ryan)
