From James Bond to Yellow Submarine…

Members of our newly formed Dawlish Learning Partnership Orchestra were invited to a music workshop to play with the Devon Youth Concert Orchestra at the Red Rock Centre in Dawlish.

The DLP Orchestra, which meets every Thursday at Exminster School, only started playing together in January and have already grown into a rehearsed orchestra playing their first concerts in the coming weeks.  The members are all Gifted and Talented musicians from our local Primary Schools and Dawlish Community College.

Our young musicians thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to play alongside the accomplished Devon Youth Concert Orchestra, conducted by Paul Painter.

The morning workshops were followed by a short concert to family and friends at the end of the afternoon, with performances by DYCO, a sing-a-long to ‘Lean on Me’ and joint performances from both orchestras.  The result was amazing – over 50 young musicians playing some fantastic music together.
