Holst: The Planets (Orchestra) at De Montfort Hall, Leicester in April 2017

Holst: The Planets (Orchestra) at De Montfort Hall, Leicester in April 2017

We have arranged a trip to the De Montfort Hall in Leicester to listen to the Philharmonia Orchestra perform Holst’s The Planets on Saturday 22 April.

We will leave school at 5.30pm and expect to arrive back at Campion around 10.15pm.

The cost of the trip is £17. You can pay at the school office or by ParentPay.

Pupils can bring money to buy refreshments at the theatre or bring their own sweets, but any packaging must not make a noise during the performance. Pupil can wear their own clothes, but they must be suitable for a school trip.

The haunting beauty of Elgar’s Cello Concerto sits alongside Holst’s planetary masterpiece. Holst took his inspiration from the astrological rather than the astronomical, journeying through Mars, the apocalyptic Bringer of War; a tranquil Venus; Mercury’s winged messenger; Jupiter, the stately Bringer of Jollity; Saturn’s old age, Uranus The Magician and finally, a dreamy Neptune, The Mystic.

If you would like your child to take part in this school trip, then please sign and return the slip along with £17 to the school office. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come basis.
