Billy is the finest conductor who ever lived. Come and join him and his wonderful band in the second edition of their musical adventures in The Jewel Thief.
Valerie is thrilled to be playing a solo at the band’s next performance, but when world-famous violinist Ivor Nikalot turns up, she has to take a back-seat. Billy assures Valerie that her time will come, but it comes sooner than she expects when a jewel thief strikes in Sunnyvale.
The activities on Billy’s Band Camp CD cover pitch, tempo, dynamics, duration, texture, timbre and improvisation. This gives children, parents and teachers the oportunity to be imaginative and inventive, whilst having lots of musical fun.
Listen to “Ivor Nikalot’s Song” from the audio CD.
Featuring Simon Callow as Billy and Nicola Benedetti on violin.
Dan Newell & John Blackshaw
