Miss Rusbatch is planning to host a concert for musically talented children throughout the school. The concerts will be an opportunity for musicians to perform on stage in front of an audience. The school choirs, orchestra, small ensembles and soloists will be encouraged to perform.
If you, as a parent, would like your child to perform on their instrument, please contact Miss Rusbatch.
The Spring Concert will take place on Wednesday 19th March. More details coming soon...
The Year 6 band 'Checkpoint' kindly agreed to help Miss Rusbatch for her current university MA project. The children wrote and performed their own song called You Don't Live Twice. Here's the result:

I hope you all had a wonderful festive holiday and enjoyed saying goodbye to the eventful and memorable 2013 and hello to what will surely be a magically musical 2014.
Music clubs and rehearsals will not begin until week 2 of this term - week beginning 13th January.
