|"Six talented musicians from Rochdale Sixth Form College took to the stage this week in a unique performance that saw pupils and students from around the North West play alongside professionals from the world-renowned Manchester Camerata, at the Royal Northern College of Music.
Around 200 students, and 35 professional musicians, were involved in the performance, which was the climax of NoteAble Numbers, a learning project to get children and young adults involved in music-making, while also promoting a greater awareness of numbers, with the piece exploring topics such as Pi and counting.
The Year 12 and 13 students involved from Rochdale Sixth Form College - Catherine Ayres, Alicia France, Bradley Harrison, Nathan Hobson, Calumn McIvor and Amy Upton - not only played at the concert, but had also been involved in the composition of the piece when composer Kate Pearson ran two workshops at the College earlier this year."
