Performing Arts Evening

Performing Arts Evening

What a talented group of children we have in Years 3 – 6.  Through Music, Dance and Drama, the children delighted their audience.  A large part of the evening showed the talent of those pupils who receive individual or small group private lessons.  It was clear that, with the support of a team of experienced peripatetic teachers, our young people have flourished over the past year.

Drama provided a number of varied performances.  The Car Trip struck a chord with the parents in the audience as the Year 4 Group Speaking group led us through a nightmare journey with bored young people in the car.  The pupils from 3 and 4 delighted us with verse, mime and acting for which they had received excellent results in a recent Festival.  Anoushka showed that she was as proficient in acting as she was in singing Naughty from Matilda.

What a delight to see one of our dancers on stage.  Suitably costumed, Lizzie delighted us with her performance of a dancer in a music box.  She didn’t miss a beat and she looked every inch the part.

Felina has made such good progress on the violin and Max’s saxophone playing created quite a stir.  He has only been learning since September!  Our pianists and singers performed from a wide repertoire and the drummers, as ever, proved extremely popular.

Taken from the Strictly Come Singing group of songs, the Intermediate Choir sang their hearts out.  Having sung a Cha-Cha and a Samba, the group of year 3 and 4 children then combined the two songs; quite a feat but which they performed with aplomb.

I should like to thank Angela Benson, Coral Swanwick, Katherine Crowley, Mary Manser, Ollie Green, Philippa Poulton Smith, Anita Gunn and Mary Pearson for all their hard work preparing their pupils for the evening.  All too often these teachers have been busy teaching our pupils but are hidden away in their teaching rooms.
