Each of our brass groups has given Christmas performances to parents and the rest of the School.
Backworth Park Primary have been the busiest and you can read about their performances, and see photos and videos, in the previous post.
Balliol Primary brass group played at the Carol Service held in St Mary Magdalene Church, Longbenton on Monday 12th December. They played Away in a Manger before our tutors led the congregation in singing the carol, and they played Carol of the Drum before the School Choir gave a splendid rendition of the same csrol. It was lovely to see so many children taking part in the service, and many parents too.
Burradon Community brass group gave a performance of Away in a Manger and Carol of the Drum to parents at the end of our last brass group session on Tuesday 13th Dec, and then to the rest of the School during the Assembly on the last day of term on Friday 16th Dec.
Hopefully, these performance will have given all the children and adult learners confidence, and increased their enthusiasm to learn to play music! Certainly, it has lifted the status of the brass groups within the schools and shown many of the parents just what their children have achieved in a very short time!
Well done everyone.
