The first orchestral rehearsal of the year happened this week and I was delighted with the turn out with over 40 players taking the stage. We started work on some pieces with a focus on the Stage and Screen concert later in the year. If there any further pupils that would like to join then please do get in touch and I can add them to the list.
We have also had our first Community Choir rehearsal and again, this was a fabulous first rehearsal. Some staff members in this rehearsal were singing for the first time in a choir, not being able to read music, but making an amazing sound. Bravo! I look forward to seeing and hearing how they develop over the course of the year.
All of the pupils taking Instrumental lessons should have been emailed regarding lesson times and days. Please do get in contact with me if there are any issues with the timetabling of these lessons. If your child is borrowing a school instrument then I ask you to please look after it as if it was your own.
