Stops Away! at De Montfort Hall

Stops Away!

De Montfort Hall Leicester

Year 4 children from Sapcote All Saints and Sharnford primary schools were fortunate to enjoy some wonderful live music from two of the country's greatest organists on Tuesday 5th June 2018. 

We had prepared beforehand by listening to the music of The Carnival of the Animals, creating art works and poetry around the Lions, Elephants, Swans, Kangaroos, Fossils and Aquarium featured in the music.

The children were really delighted to see many of their artworks had been chosen to display on the big screen when we arrived in the impressive De Montfort Hall. During the session, some of us were also very happy to hear our poetry being read aloud. 

During this interactive morning, as well as listening to parts of The Carnival of the Animals being played, we learned about how the mighty pipe organ worked and we got to see behind with special camera access.

The children seemed to really enjoy this rare opportunity of hearing professionally played live music and we each had our favourite piece!


Many thanks,


Mrs Allen :)
