With Christmas nearly here, all three of our school bands have now performed for their Schools.
Burradon Community were first to go on Monday 11th December, performing Join the Band, Rock Around the Clock and Jingle Bells to the whole school, then the next day to parents at the end of our final session for the year.
Balliol played Carol of the Drum and Jingle Bells at the School’s Christmas service at St Mary Magdalene Church in Longbenton on Monday 18th. Chloe did a great job keeping rhythm on the drum for Carol of the Drum, and our youngest member Alfie enthusiastically livened Jingle Bells by playing…well you can probably guess!
At Backworth Park we played Join the Band, Rock Around the Clock, Away in a Manger and Jingle Bells to a special School assembly on Tuesday 19th.
It only remains to wish you all a very merry and musical Christmas and happy New Year, with our 2017 Christmas card featuring a drawing by one of our band members from Burradon Community Primary School.
