Our Junior School Orchestra meets every week and performs termly. Most instruments are represented and it has been commented that they often tackle music more akin to a senior school repertoire.
Children may sign up to practise their instrument/singing between 4-6pm each day, when we have a music specialist on hand to help them if needed.
Many of our young musicians are awarded music scholarships to our senior school.
Music is a Performing Art and with this in mind, we give the children from Pre Reception to Year 6 as many opportunities as possible to practise this skill and gain pleasure from performing to an audience.
Regular large scale events include:
Harvest Celebrations; Christmas Carol Services & Nativities; a combined Christmas Concert with the Senior School in the Great Hall; Spring Concerts; Grandparents’ Day Concert; Parents’ Day performances; Year 6 Musical Play
Smaller events include:
Recital Evenings; Class Concerts; Piano Concerts; Early Morning Concerts; Tea Time Concerts;
