On Friday, we were treated to brilliant percussive performances by Drum United. Their shows incorporated drums, xylophones, body percussion, comedy, silliness, audience participation and lots of fun! Keep your eyes peeled for videos, to give you sneak peek of what we experienced.
With only a few weeks to go, before her Grade 5 violin exam, Ella is sounding great - huge thanks to her teacher, Lisa de Simone and today's accompanist, Dan. I sneaked in and recorded some of today's rehearsal!
Huge congratulations to everyone involved in today's performances in the Pavilion Gardens. Bannockburn Primary School - you were amazing today. Thank you very much for joining us and sharing an important story and beautiful music. Thanks to the staff and parent volunteers from both schools. Thanks also to the organisers of the Dr Blighty festival. The atmosphere was wonderful today and the sun was certainly shining in approval!
Tomorrow's the Big Day!
The Dr Blighty project has begun and last night's projections onto the Pavilion were spectacular. This is one of many amazing free events taking place all week and weekend. We are one of those performances! Tomorrow: 2.30pm - 3.15pm
On Saturday, Miss Rusbatch, Ms Kay, Mrs Roberts and Hilary (our school counsellor) performed alonsgide 130 other members of Brighton Goes Gospel Choir. Mrs Kaiser is also a member of the choir but was unable to attend these concerts. The sold out audiences were on their feet and singing and dancing and clapping .and feeling good!
Below is a video clip of Miss Rusbatch singing with Lou (another choir member) - 'Walk With Me' with accompaniment from the choir:
Last weekend, Isis (Year 4) travelled to Germany to compete in the European Street Dance Championships. Her crew is called Killabeez. She and her crew did brilliantly, making finals, and Isis herself finished in the top 3 for her improvised solo dance.
WELL DONE ISIS!
Parents of children in Mega Choir and Orchestra: Please complete and return the slip on the letter below before Wednesday. Thank you very much.
Thanks and well done to everyone involved in last Saturday's parade. The sun was shining, the drums were banging and the crowds were smiling.
Yesterday, after school, Molly and Kate (in 4K) went busking in Preston Park. They chose to sing the Year 4 Children's Parade song for this year's Brighton Festival. Not only did that mean they got lots of extra practise, they also managed to raise £11.50. They have very kindly decided to donate the money to the school's music department.
THANK YOU MOLLY & KATE
