CBSO and Ninestiles Academy Trust Project Performance 

Over this academic year, our Trust schools have been working on a project with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) on a project incorporating art and music.  On the Friday 8th June, the students and staff involved in the project came together with the CBSO to share the music they have been working on collaboratively. The theme of this year’s project was  ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’ and students across the Trust created paintings to go alongside the musical performance.

The students had the amazing opportunity to share their performance on stage at The Symphony Hall, with the paintings created by Sixth Form College and Ninestiles students exhibited in the foyer for the audience to view.

Our primary students formed a choir to accompany our secondary students and the CBSO ensemble performing the set list below.
