Birdsong in 7 Norwich Primary Schools 7-9 March 2017
A resource pack including activities created during our Fair Isle week was sent to each school in advance of our visit, along with notes on the featured instruments and composers. Each school visit included introductions to the instruments, including Kerry Andrew's loop station, and music on the theme of birds.
At the culminating concert in the John Innes Centre Roderick joined on piano, and the children joined in Kerry's rendition of "Little Sparrow" with percussive sounds.
