Congratulations to all the musicians and singers for their fabulous performances to a packed audience at this year's summer concert. This year we were treated to a variaty of performances including woodwind, violins, recorders, cello, brass, the School Orchestra and the Choir. Thank you to all our instrumental teachers Mrs Elmslie (woodwind), Mrs Gooding (brass), Mrs Wilson (violin) Ban dMrs Henderson (Cello). Thank you to parents, children and to Mrs Elmslie for their commitment and contribution to making Wherwell a musical School.
We were very pleased to welcome Sierra Schwartz from Hampshire Music Service to school . She entertained the whole school by demonstrating a selection of brass instruments. We hope that many children will be inspired by this and take up these instruments and hopefully enrich our ever growing orchestra.
"Oh I do love to live beside the seaside!"
Classes 2 and 3 have been lucky enough to be working with Nick Duncombe from the Hampshire Music Service. The children learned a selection of short seaside classic songs and then performed them to the whole school and their parents. It was a wonderful opportunity for the children to learn new songs and to develop their singing abilities in a fun way.
