Description

MATT FARTHING - Percussionist. Lunchtime concert with body percussion workshop.

About Matt Farthing - Matt Farthing is a dynamic percussionist based in London. He is delighted to be supported by the Countess of Munster Musical Trust. Matt performs regularly with orchestras and ensembles including the London Symphony Orchestra, the John Wilson Orchestra and the Colin Currie Group. Performances include playing with the LSO and Sir Simon Rattle at the 2018 BBC Proms and Lucerne Festival in Switzerland. More recently, Matt has enjoyed recording with the LSO at Abbey Road Studios in London. As a soloist, Matt was a Percussion Category Finalist in the BBC Young Musician of the Year 2014, and the Winner of the UK Tuned Percussion Competitions in 2012 (U16) and 2014 (U18) Competitions.

Concert and Workshop - Your class will watch Matt's full concert before participating in the post-concert workshop. The workshop will be built around body percussion. Matt will use a selection of simple rhythms and layer them to create a short piece with your class to perform at the end of the workshop.

TIMINGS - The performance starts promptly at 1pm. Schools will need to arrive by 12.30pm to be seated by 12.50pm at the latest.

COST - Attendance is FREE to young people at local Kent schools, and to accompanying staff and their parents. We very much encourage parents/carers to attend this concert for free, too, but they will have to be seated with the school and arrive with the school.

BOOKING - You will be asked to fill in a short booking form, which indicates exactly how many young people, staff and parents/carers will be attending. We will need this in advance of the performance, and cannot guarantee space if you turn up unexpectedly on the day. There is only room for one group of 30 students to attend the percussion workshop.

TARGET YEAR GROUPS - KS2-3

GETTING THERE - We advise that you attend the performance from your school via walking bus as there is limited parking locally.

NOTE ABOUT THE AUDIENCE - The performance is also open to the general public, so please be aware of this in advance. We need to ensure that all children are accompanied by your school staff at all times (to toilets, and so on) and that they need to be on their very best behaviour throughout (of which we have no doubt that they will be, of course!). Please ensure that children bring a bottle of water or squash (and small snack if needed) with them to the concert.
