Our school orchestra recently gained twenty-two new recorder players from Years 3 & 4 and three new violin players from Crocodile Class, taking our numbers up to sixty-five! 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.
