Last week we showed you how versatile (and flexible) the piano could be by playing backwards, upside down, etc. This week, we bring you clarinets in space!
10 year old Elin designed an engineered clarinet to go into orbit through a competition called Life on Mars asking children to redesign something they ‘couldn’t live without’ should they ever move to another planet.
The clarinet was successfully launched to the edge of the atmosphere from Ashbourne in Derbyshire where it reached a dizzying height of 35 km and freezing temperatures before hurtling back to earth at over 150mph, landing safely by parachute in North Lincolnshire. Watch the launch here! What would you take to space that you couldn’t live without?
- What a performance on Saturday! Our Nottingham Festival Chorus combined with the Dutch Project Choir, wonderfully directed by Martin van der Brugge, showed all their hard work from the last week of rehearsals to perform Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man. We were also delighted to be joined by fantastic soloist Emma Brown and Tahir Mahmood for the Call to Prayer. Click here to see the action shots!
- Open Voices Sherwood are featuring on Notts TV tonight (Monday 14 October) between 5.30pm and 6.30pm. Tune in to see what they’ve been up to!
Have a good week!
