13th October 2016
On the 11th October 15 Barrow Hills children took part in an Orchestral Day. With great enthusiasm we joined King Edward’s School Orchestra for a nonstop programme of music making and fun.
The day was rounded off by a concert for parents and guests, and included items from soloists, string orchestra, wind band, and full orchestra. Our fantastic soloists included, Anna (violin) performing ‘Intermezzo’ by Kodaly, Imogen singing ‘Dalmatian Cradle Song’ – traditional; Julien Early (horn) performing ‘St Anthony Chorale’ by Brahms and Annabel Bates (clarinet) performing ‘Ssh’ by Mark Cropton.
Everyone who took part in the music making should be extremely proud of what they achieved; transforming the music from the barely-recognisable at the start of the day, culminating in a highly commendable performance. Plans are already developing for what is sure to become an annual event!
