Visit to Symphony Hall Science of Sound event

Year 4 and Year 5

Year 4 and Year 5 had the fantastic opportunity to explore the Science of Sound in the outstanding acoustics of Symphony Hall – believed by many to be the best in the world.


The  team of musicians, technicians and a science specialist from Science Made Simple  transformed the  Symphony Hall into an interactive sound laboratory. The children were able to explore how sound is made, how it travels and how we hear – all through fun and interactive demonstrations.

The children at St Peter's:

  • Experienced quality time in Birmingham’s world-famous concert hall
  • Listened to the pipe organ (with 6,000 pipes)
  • Watched our Bafta-nominated organ film ‘The Musical Mechanical Marvel’
