18 Jan RSA Song Cycle Project
On Tuesday 16th January we were visited by musicians from BCMG (Birmingham Contemporary Music Group) to work on a whole RSA project. The project involves groups of students from each RSA school to write a song as part of a larger song cycle. Each song will represent the school that it is written by and will be performed in Redditch and Birmingham. The workshop on Tuesday involved pupils from Ipsley meeting the composer, Michael Betteridge, who will be writing the songs for each school.
The pupils created some great work that best represented Ipsley including some great initial lyrics. It was an enjoyable morning of music making and the pupils are excited to welcome back the team from BCMG to develop our song further.
