Online Summer Concert
Despite being at home for the last few months, around 100 children continued with their instrumental or singing lessons, some juggling 2 or 3 instruments around their remote school lessons.
We are all now expert at trouble shooting technical hitches, sound blips, dodgy Wi-Fi whilst remaining patient and calm! Huge thanks to our peripatetic teachers who also discovered Zoom and allowed extra time or re booked extra lessons to make sure everyone had their 30 minutes.
16 children from Years 3, 4, 5 and 7 felt they had a piece, or in some cases 2 pieces, that were ready to share, and partook in this rather special event.
I was impressed by everyone who performed. For some performers it was their first concert on a new instrument too.
Bravo to Sophie W, Reuben N, Eliza B, Camille S, Alexandra P, Gabriella S, Theo N, Mya V, Phoebe M, Pippa G, Isobel B, Millie M, Rex C, Oliver V, Isabelle W and Henry H.
Special thanks to the Nichols boys who provided an encore, and brought a 3 day old chick to show us.
Confidence, Joy, musicality, beautiful pitching, phrasing….I could go on! What musical talent we have coming up through the school. I am sad not to be here to see you all blossom further, but will definitely keep in touch.
