Percussion Concert

On Thursday some year 8 musicians enjoyed an afternoon watching the Birmingham Conservatoire students perform at the Adrian Boult Hall in Birmingham. The concert was given by the conservatoire percussion students and showcased their incredible skills on a variety of world instruments and in a range of genres.
