Southbank Sinfonia takes class via high speed broadband


The UK's top musicians are teaching children in remote areas using high speed digital broadband.

The Southbank Sinfonia Orchestra has run music workshops for seven schools in North Yorkshire.

The scheme was organised by North Yorkshire broadband initiative Nynet and ANS Group, which helped develop the data links.

The aim of the project is to show the potential benefits of high speed broadband to communities away from cities.

This rehearsal of 'Peter and the Wolf' was filmed in Richmond Primary School, North Yorkshire with a link to to the Southbank Sinfonia in Bedale Primary School, North Yorkshire. It was compiled from footage supplied by ANS Group.
