Charity Music Concert
This week saw pupils from across the Girls, Boys and Sixth give some wonderful musical performances at the Charity Music Concert in Castle Chapel.
The concert was raising money for the charity Music for All, which aims to enable better health, wellbeing and education across the UK through music making; more information about Music for All can be found at the end of the article.
As well as raising money for Music for All through the generous donations of our school community, the charity concert also aimed to bring awareness to the importance of music-making beyond school and within communities. With performances from two visiting musicians (Annabell Pidduck and Sam Dolling), the concert also demonstrated to the pupils involved where music might take them in the future and the opportunities it provides. It also provided a friendly, relaxed atmosphere for pupils to gain performance experience in.
As well as the exceptional and inspiring performances from the visiting musicians, the concert contained a wide range of musical instruments and styles, from the Star Wars theme tune to Tchaikovsky to pupils’ own original compositions. A unifying factor, however, was the talent and evident hard work of the pupils involved which really shone through in their performances. The concert was an excellent reminder of the confidence that music can build and the rewards that hard work can bring.
A big thank you must go to Miss Lay and Miss Masterton for organising, to Mr Noithip and Mr Melling for accompaniment, visiting musicians Annabell and Sam and to catering for providing drinks and nibbles. Thank you also to all who attended and who generously donated to Music for All.
