Music Scholars to St Cecilia's Hall

Music Scholars to St Cecilia's Hall

A fabulous visit!

A group of F8 children visited the historical instruments collection at St Cecilia’s Hall as part of their all-round preparation for upcoming music scholarship interviews. We were treated to a bespoke guided tour with Dr Sarah Deters, Learning and Engagement Curator or the collection, and were able to see early examples of the instruments the children are learning and discover how they developed over time. The children also had the opportunity to try some of the modern replica instruments, including a natural trumpet, a harpsichord and a very early piano of the sort that was developed during Mozart’s lifetime. It was such a joy to see how engaged the children were and the time just flew by!
