Pictured are the children who took part in the ‘Tea-time Concert’, which took place in the music room shortly before the Easter break. In front of an enthusiastic and supportive audience of parents, relatives and friends, all the children played to an exceptionally high standard, which was met with rapturous applause from the appreciative listeners.
Opening with Rosa Porter playing ‘Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho’ on guitar and continuing with Ella Gardner and Gracie Davis duetting on violins in ‘Double Click’, the concert got off to a lively start. Continuing, we heard Emily Bishop perform ‘The Black Cat’ on piano and Jaanika Barrett played ‘Mary Had a Violin’, not surprisingly on the violin! Two super performances full of poise and musicality. The concert concluded with 3 of our older pupils taking to the stage, Maddy Brenner and Lilly Mazer playing ‘The Old Castle’ as a violin and cello duet, before Sophie Hurford rounded off the afternoon with a delightful vocal performance of ‘The Second Star to the Right’ from Peter Pan.
At the conclusion, light refreshments of tea and cake were enjoyed by all – and there was more than enough cake to go round, even allowing some enthusiastic pupils to enjoy ‘seconds’! Nigel Birt
