Last night was our annual summer concert, when parents and family members are treated to a wonderful evening of music and song.
The choir opened and closed the evening with contrasting songs, showing their skills and tunefulness to great effect. The choir is made up of pupils from years 3-6 and they sing with enthusiasm and great musicality.
The children who have singing lessons with Mme. Borget also sang to us a medley from 'The Sound of Music', an apt choice as the film is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
Individual children performed on violin, cello, clarinet, flute, saxophone and piano. We heard both from those who have been learning for a few months, and from other more experienced pupils. The standard was impressively high, and all children displayed increased confidence. For the first time we had the ukelele played at one of our concerts when some Yr.5 pupils showed what they have learned to do this year in class music lessons.
Altogether everyone was excellently entertained - and the children enjoyed themselves and were able to keep their nerves in check.
I should like to thank parents again for the support they give to their children, thus enabling them to participate in musical activities. Also thanks to Mrs Framingham, Miss Catley and Madame Borget for their continued work teaching our pupils.
