Juniors Informal Concert

On February 11th, we held our Junior School Informal Concert. It was a special event for several reasons: it was our last concert in the current Junior Hall before work begins on our new facilities and we also got to hear a performance from 5M who have been learning the trumpet and trombone with Mr Ian Rowe this last month. It was amazing to hear how the pupils have learned five notes and six pieces in just five short weeks! Mr Rowe and I were ably assisted by Hannah and Lara, two more experienced players, during these music lessons. They also both performed impressive solo pieces during the concert, along with pupils from Year 1 to Year 6, including an expressive rendition of a Chopin Prelude from Avery. Some other highlights included Zadie and Nicole’s violin duet, Matty’s unaccompanied singing of ‘Danny Boy’ (perfectly in pitch throughout!), and Ishya in Year 1 playing three pieces and finishing with a perfect concert bow.
