Ks2 Young Persons Guide To The Orchestra.

So what exactly is an orchestra? Why is the piccolo so small? Why are the double basses so big? And what on earth is a xylophone supposed to sound like? Don’t worry: Benjamin Britten has got it covered. With a bit of help from presenter Catherine Arlidge and our Music Director Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, this hour-long concert specially devised for Key Stage 2 will show you exactly how it all works.
