There is nothing finer than to start the day with a concert or recital. Our young musicians in Year 4 certainly entertained the audience with their panache and professionalism this week. More than two thirds of Year 4 have instrumental lessons either in School or at home, and demand was such for places this term that we had to add another Morning Recital into the calendar to give everyone an opportunity to perform. It was a special treat to hear the Year 4 Choir sing so nicely too. Well done one and all.

I am always thrilled to see the progress the children are making; for some this was their first recital, for others it was perhaps the last time they will play in a Morning Recital before they progress into a higher tier of performance in our Prelude Concert series.

The standard of playing was as high as ever, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Visiting Music Teachers for their continued dedication as they encourage each child to reach for the ‘high notes’.
