Upper Prep music festival

Thank you to all the parents and friends who came to see our Upper Prep pupils perform a selection of musical items in The Barn this afternoon. Some of the children have been learning their instruments for a year or more, while others are just beginners, but the festival gives all those who wish to perform the opportunity to show what they have been practising in their music lessons. The audience enjoyed a varied programme of solo and ensemble pieces before joining the children for refreshments.

Upper Prep music festival tomorrow

Tomorrow afternoon Upper Prep pupils will be performing a selection of musical items in The Barn. We hope as many parents and friends as possible will come and share the performance and refreshments afterwards. The festival provides a great opportunity for all the children who wish to perform to show what they have been practising in their music lessons; some have been learning for a while and others have only recently started, so the programme will be varied and entertaining.
