Who was Benjamin Britten?
Who are the pop stars of today? Children do the Youth Pop Music Quiz https://tinyurl.com/y3dru4o3 Discuss ideas about what popular music is. Is it confined to a certain musical style? What makes something popular? Does it follow trends of the time?
What is your favourite type of music/band/singer? Find out about Benjamin Britten from the Britten Pears Foundation website https://brittenpears.org/ . Listen to some of his music.
Investigate Britten's most famous works including Peter Grimes and Four Sea Interludes. Investigate the musical genre of opera – a fully staged composition that includes singing and staging in addition to the music. Do you think people today want to see an Opera? Why? Visit the Royal Opera House website https://www.roh.org.uk/ .
