On Friday 21st May 2021 the Longfleet School Orchestra gave their first performance since March 2020! Following more than a year of social distancing, cancelled rehearsals and then year group rehearsals we are finally able to play all together again. It was lovely to be able to invite a small group of teachers to come and listen to us play and we hope you enjoy watching these recordings. Below the recordings you can see pictures of all our orchestra members. We are very proud of all of them for their aspiration, resilience, hard work and talent.
Our school orchestra recently gained twenty-two new recorder players from Years 3 & 4 and three new violin players from Crocodile Class. To celebrate, we learnt a piece of music called ‘Superhero Blues’ and performed it to the parents after school on Wednesday. Children representing each of our instruments also performed a piece of music. The recorders kicked off the concert with ‘Chilled’, followed by performances from the flutes and clarinets. Our cello pupils performed Frere Jacques in three parts and a Grade 2 piece called ‘Happy Places’. Jiya then gave us a lovely solo violin performance of a piece from ‘Carmen’. Our trombones, cornets and trumpets gave a lively rendition of ‘Strollin’ followed by impressive solos by Zoya on the piano and Josh on the drumkit. The concert ended with ‘Superhero Blues’ performed by the whole orchestra. Well done to the orchestra (especially if that was your first ever performance) and thank you to all the parents, families, friends and teachers who came to listen.
