We enjoyed not one but two wonderful concerts this week. The Prelude Concert on Wednesday was a joyous showcase of our more advanced students, containing some very polished performances of quite challenging repertoire. Thursday morning’s Morning Recital for our Year 5 and 6 pupils provided a playing platform for our developing musicians. I was particularly pleased to hear the young brass players play with such aplomb. Bravo one and all!!
Continuing on a brassy note, we have two spaces for some brave children who would like to learn to play the grand-daddy of all brass instruments, The TUBA!! ideally pupils in Y4 and above, we have just taken delivery of our own brand new Tuba and now we need someone to play it. If you are interested or want some more information about the King of the Brass Family, do please get in touch.
A plug now for two forthcoming events:
Wednesday 20 March is our Gala Concert, the culmination of our Music Festival. We really want a full house to support the Finalists of the Music Festival. Entry is free for all, and the concert starts at 6 pm and will last approximately an hour. Do please come and support the children, even if your child is not taking part – it will be an amazing concert!
Saturday 30 March is our Spring Concert. Performing Haydn’s powerful and dramatic Nelson Mass will be the Chapel Choir and our Choral Society, with a professional orchestra. All are welcome – it is suitable for all prep-aged children and some of the older pre-prep pupils too. Tickets are £10 on the door for adults. Children under 16 go free. The concert will last 1 hour. Please do support the musicians. I would encourage Y4 pupils especially if they are thinking about what it might be like to be in the Chapel Choir!!
