Perse students add a Latin string to their bow in music masterclass
Perse pupils were treated to a special masterclass by from fusion music group Classico Latino.
Classico Latino specialise in melding authentic Latin music with the Western classical tradition and brought signature sound to workshop sessions with the school’s strings players.
Students learned and rehearsed classical string arrangements of Latin pieces of music, such as Alma Llanera, in preparation for a concert with the ensemble in the Peter Hall Performing Arts Centre.
The Perse musicians had a fantastic time learning from Classico Latino, especially benefitting from styles and rhythms that were not familiar to them from playing classical music.
“My favourite part was working on the rhythms” another pupil commented.
