Message from the Director of Music - 9th September 2016

09 September 2016

This week has seen the second week of auditions for Into the Woods, having already auditioned Years 11, 12 and 13, our focus this week was on Years 9 and 10. We have been so impressed with the preparation that the pupils have put in for these auditions as well as the professional manner in which they have performed. Next week we move to Year 7 and 8 so we hope for more of the same. The signs all point to a fantastic show come the end of March. The set has already started to be measured up and with the help of Mr Mills and Mr Thomas, pupils are working away in the set building CCA that was set up new this year. Once all of these auditions have concluded the pupils will be issued with a letter stating what role they have been given and following that parents will be able to sign up for the appropriate CCA.

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.

Future Dates
