Working with a Drumming Rock Star!

Stewart Copeland (centre) with the choristers and Mr Cole

Tuesday 4 June was a very exciting day for some of our choristers, who spent the afternoon filming with iconic drummer Stewart Copeland for a forthcoming BBC documentary series.

Mr Copeland leapt to fame as the drummer for the British rock band The Police, and has since gone on to compose film and video game soundtracks and written various pieces of music for ballet, opera and orchestra.

It was a great experience for the choristers and, as well as demonstrating and discussing what they do on a daily basis, they also taught Mr Copeland a thing or two about polyphony!

Playing to the camera!

Smile please!
