BBC SSO on Skye
February 12, 2015
Jessica has been in Skye this week, in residency with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. It was the first time a professional symphony orchestra visited the island, and this innovative project will include public concerts, working with children on learning workshops, and collaborating with local musicians and schools.
The main concert featured works by Anna Meredith, Stravinksy, Mozart (4th concerto with the superb horn player Richard Watkins) and Beethoven's 7th symphony.
Students from local schools were also given exclusive access to the orchestra's rehearsal ahead of the Friday night concert, during which they took part in an art workshop, drawing players of the orchestra. Here are a few particulary fine depictions of Jessica's conducting style!
