Instruments can be endangered too

Year 5 went to the Royal Albert Hall today to try out a wide variety of instruments that the musicians regard as endangered. These are the instruments that are no longer popular and fashionable with children and young people and if no one starts learning them then they will disappear from our orchestras just like the tigers are disappearing from our jungles.  The children had a great time trying out woodwind, percussion, brass and stringed instruments from across the orchestra in the majestic surroundings of the Royal Albert Hall. Hopefully one day we might see one of them on stage there playing a symphony or a sonata! There are lots of photos on Twitter so please check there to see all the action and thanks to the Royal Albert Hall for liking our tweets too.
