Y4 welcomed Jonathan Bloxham
Y4 were treated to a visit from the Northern Chords this morning led by Johnathan Bloxham a cellist and assistant conductor of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Jonathan grew up in Gateshead, discovering the cello at primary school and established the Northern Chords Festival in 2008. In addition to learning more about the cello and hearing Jonathan play it Y4 children also learned some conducting skills. Jonathan was accompanied by the pianist Ashley Fripp.
