Lunchtime Concert - January 2017

We all thoroughly enjoyed this half term’s lunchtime concert. We were treated to some very accomplished performances. The children, without exception, can be proud of their respectful attitude during the concert itself and was also present when they were warming up and tuning up beforehand. Everyone helped their fellow performer to rehearse and those who were new to the whole process were made to feel part of the team.

One or two performances need a special mention here. Joseph Imonioro played ‘Ode to Joy’ on his clarinet. It was great to hear how well he is doing, especially in his first concert and he made no mistakes, squeaks or fluffs and tongued each note brilliantly. Rohit Rajaraman played a superb piece called ’Dwarfs of the Mist’. He played the fast running semiquavers clearly and made them sound menacing. The chordal sections in the piece really evoked a threatening atmosphere and reminded us of The Hall of the Mountain King by Grieg. Anas Mehrez conjured up his own atmosphere as he read us part of the book ‘Boy’ by Roald Dahl. The wonderful expression he used to tell the story made us all want to listen to the rest of the book. But sadly the concert was over far too soon and I suppose we did need to have our lunch!

Well done everyone. Keep up the good work!
