This week we were delighted to hold a recital here again for our pupils with pianist and SRRCC piano teacher Mr Booth. Mr Booth played a fascinating programme of Bach, Rachmaninov, Messiaen and Bartok and we were so pleased to see so many keen musicians there to watch this inspiring performance!
For the Y7s this week (and next) we have been chatting to each pupil individually about their musical interests, experiences and musical life in the department. We are so pleased that there has been so much enthusiasm already for the musical opportunities here at SRRCC and we look forward to welcoming lots of new members into our ensembles and hearing the development of pupils starting new instruments.
This morning we held our orchestra welcome party, complete with croissants, plenty of music chatter and many new orchestra members. We’re so glad to see our orchestral musicians returning and to have more joining up!
This week we also welcome back gospel choir on Friday and next week chamber choir!
