Virtual Concert Showcases Crescent’s Talented Musicians
Crescent’s talented young musicians have showcased their wonderful skills in a superb second virtual concert.
The children are all preparing for music examinations at the end of the November so the concert was a great opportunity for them to polish and perfect their examination pieces. The special performance features 24 musicians from Year 3 up to Year 6, on nine different instruments, including singing, at levels from the Prep Test up to Grade 5.
Music is such an important part of life at the school, so although the country is back in lockdown, Director of Music, Julie Barnes, was determined that Crescent’s musicians weren’t going to miss out on the opportunity to perform their examination pieces to everyone.
Each of the children pre-recorded their performance either at home or in school and sent the video through to Mrs Barnes. The individual clips were then put together into a programme of traditional and contemporary pieces, the range of which is inspiring for us all.
Comments Mrs Barnes “The pandemic was not going to stop our pupils from performing! The children were all incredible, they really rose to the occasion and played their very best. I am very proud of all of our talented young musicians.”
A link to the concert has been shared with parents. A huge well done to all of the participants, it is wonderful entertainment that is just perfect for a lockdown evening at home!
