Creativity Week: Lilipop and Jellypop

17 Mar

Hello, this is Lilipop and today for the last day of Creativity Week Jelly and I want to show you some of the creative stuff we do!

As you may already know, Jelly and I are both musicians. I play the viola and the bassoon and Jelly plays the flute (we also both have the ability to sing and often harminise The Beach Boys really really badly but that doesn’t count). Here I have a video I made our of a soundtrack of a concert we did and some pictures of the orchestra! Hope you enjoy!

It would be great if you gals could comment on these posts, your opinions and maybe some suggestion or submitions (for another creativity week or for another themed week altogether!). If you want to get in contact with us or any of our lovely creative guests then email Jellypop at jelly.pop@live.co.uk or for more contact information go to the Contact Us page.

LOOK! We can make noises and stuff.

HELLO! Lilipop here. As you may have noticed, Jelly and I rather like music. So far we have done quite a few posts about music we like listening to but we haven’t posted anything about the music we play.

This is what music-y things I do: I play the viola and bassoon in various school orchestras and at my saturday music school (CYM) I also sing in 2 or 3 choirs. I do other music things outside of school like South London Youth Orchestra and LSO On Track. All of this is mostly classical with the occasional bit of jazz and various other stuff. It sounds really weird but classical music is my most favouritist thing to play but listening to it makes me fall asleep.

Jelly speaking: I don’t do much music outside of school, although in school I am a happy member of Chamber Choir (my guilty pleasure is classical choral music. I know, I’m a sad sod). I went to Animate Orchestra before going to The Band, with Lilipop, which was actually the best thing ever until I tried The Band. My flute is seriously great and I will talk about the virtues of my chosen instrument at length to anyone who will listen.

One thing we both do is The Band. The Band is basically a group of young people making/writing their own music. If you want to know more about The Band, here is the website . The last project Jelly and I did with The Band was a piece of music based on Ecclesiastical Actions by Zimmerman. We wrote it ourselves and performed it in The Clore Ballroom in The Royal Festival Hall. I got hold of the soundtrack and some photos then edited it (really REALLY) badly to make a video for you to listen to/watch. We would LURVE any feedback or questions you may have for us, contact details on the Contact Us page. ENJOY!
