Ulster Orchestra "The Sea Sheep" performance


Libby Bennett, flautist from the Ulster Orchestra, leads P4/5  children from Brackenagh West Primary School, through a rehearsal of “The Sea Sheep”.  
This is a musical tale about the Mourne Shepherd, Boirche, and the stealing of his flock by pirates and smugglers. The children enthusiastically take the part of characters in the story and use percussion instruments to aid the narration.  The children prepared pirate costumes for the  workshop and went on to perform “The Sea Sheep” for the rest of the school pupils.  Mr Ricky Matson, Education and Outreach Manager of the Ulster Orchestra also stepped in to aid his experience as a musician and educator.
