West Buckland Pupils and Staff to Star in BBC Orchestra Challenge

Emma Kent

Five West Buckland School pupils, together with Director of Music Emma Kent and a number of our fantastic music teachers, will be involved in an exciting new BBC series, due to be aired later this month. 

All Together Now:  The Great Orchestra Challenge will feature five of the UK’s best amateur orchestras, including the North Devon Sinfonia, who will battle it out over the four programme series for a place in the Grand Final. The winning orchestra will be invited to perform at The Proms in the Park in Hyde Park in September.

For the five pupils, from years 13 and 11, and music staff, who all play in the orchestra, and conducted by Emma Kent, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to perform in front of a nationwide audience and we look forward to tracking their progress through the competition.
