We are so excited to share with you our news of securing seats for a celebration of Beethoven 2020 at West Road Concert Hall in Cambridge. This is a one off opportunity and is not usually made available to primary school children. As Year 6 studied Beethoven’s life and music as part of their music curriculum last term this fits in perfectly with their learning.
We are thrilled that the 200th anniversary of his death is being celebrated worldwide this year! We would love to take the children to experience a performance by professional musicians. The Athena Ensemble will perform Beethoven’s ‘Septet Opus 20’. This will be on Tuesday 10th March in the afternoon. We aim to leave school, just before lunch at 11.30am and intend to be back before the end of the school day. Those who usually have free school dinners, can be provided with a packed lunch meal from the kitchen. Please let the office know by 2nd March otherwise please provide a packed lunch for your child.
There is a cost attached to this for the coach that will take the children from school into Cambridge. This will be £6.00 per child for the return coach and insurance. Please pay via SIMS Pay asap and by Monday 2 March. The payment will also confirm your permission for your child to attend. Yours sincerely, Yr6 staff
