A day of Delius with sixth-formers

On 18 March we hosted a study day for sixth-formers as part of the project. 15 sixth-formers from as far afield as Bristol and Bournemouth participated. The event focused on studying musical analysis at university. Students heard a lecture on Delius’s orchestral work and then worked together to examine both musical aspects of the work and its relationship to broad issues such as national identity. The day also featured a visit to Merton College for a student-led tour and a taste of chapel music-making.
