It has been a busy week in the Music Department. Our morning recital programme started with the Year 2 recital on Tuesday. It is charming to see and hear the next generation of young musicians start their musical journey at School. By coincidence, the Year 3 recital on Thursday was the next performance platform, and it was impressive to see the progress the pupils have made in such a short space of time. Our morning recital programme is open to any musicians who learn either an instrument inside or outside of school. If you would like your child to take part in a morning recital please contact the Music administrator Mr Nicklin will send the video link for this week’s recitals via Clarion Call at the beginning of the next week.

Joining the Chapel Choir is an exciting time. New choristers are called Probationers and serve a trial period for the first half of the Michaelmas term. This morning in Chapel we welcomed those Probationers into the choir by presenting them with their surplice – the white floaty bit! The choir is really starting to gel and our preparations for Advent are well underway. There is a lot of hard work still to do but the children are really giving their all. 

To crown the week, some of our more experienced Prep musicians performed in a lunchtime recital at St Philip’s Cathedral, Colmore Row. As ever their musicianship was quite superb and the audience were treated to delightful lunchtime treat! It was lovely to see some familiar faces in the audience and I am grateful to those parents who took time out of their busy days to support the children.
