Aire Ensemble

The Aire Ensemble trio has entertained audiences of all ages in a variety of settings including community childrens’ concerts in schools, churches and at the popular Kirkstall Festival.

The trio performs classical chamber music which showcase flutes and clarinets of all sizes as well as the piano.

The Aire Ensemble provides seasonally themed concerts and specific workshops for all key stages and are happy to discuss your needs if you have a specific theme in mind.

Workshops:

EYFS and KS1:

“Animal Fair”: An entertaining workshop which encourages children to take part as if they were at a Village Fair with dancing and various animal props.

KS2 and lower KS3:

“Music – What’s the Use?” looks at how music has been used over the centuries, encouraging the children to think and participate in how music relates to different situations both then and now and uses various media to illustrate the musical examples.

“The Grand Musical Tour of Europe” takes the children on a trip through various European countries via their music.

KS4:

“Composition Techniques” offers a workshop performing pieces of classical music that demonstrate various composition techniques aimed at students studying GCSE music.

All Key Stages:

“Vintage Aires” consists of music from the early 20th Century and ties in with the centenary of Armistice Day.

Seasonal Concerts: We also offer Christmas and other concerts to mark seasonal events.

Curriculum links go beyond music and encompass storytelling, language, cultural and social development, design and other expressive arts, physical education, history, science and geography.
