Our first post!

Welcome to our blog. We hope that it will prove a very helpful tool for the children and young people at Perseid, their parents and staff, the musicians of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the team at Merton Music Foundation.

It is going to be such an exciting journey that starts with us getting to know each other, sharing ideas, practising our skills and finishes with us performing live at the Royal Albert Hall in 2015. This blog is going to help us on the journey - it will be part of the road map, a diary, a place to discuss ideas and share memories.

 How great would it be if:

  • Students could watch snippets of their rehearsals with their teachers back in the classroom once the musicians have gone home? 
  • Parents could see for themselves their child interacting with musicians? 
  • Players could share these experiences with colleagues not lucky enough to come to Perseid? 
  • We could all use this blog as a notebook to capture our ideas, ask questions and discuss where we are going? 
We hope that this blog will be able to do all of these things and more!

This blog will soon be filling up with audio clips, comments, photos and video clips.
