Brass in Concert

Some of our children were among over 90 children at The Sage Gateshead on Saturday 18th Nov to take part in workshops as part of the Brass in Concert weekend. The children spent the morning rehearsing a few tunes such as “Ode to Joy”, “Freres Jacques”, “Twinkle Twinkle”, “Old MacDonald had a Farm” and other easy favourites, then performed them on the Concourse of the Sage music centre.

We also got to hear a performance of the UK’s top youth brass band, Wardle Academy Brass Band, give a very polished performance on the Concourse which included their award winning entertainment programme based around the USA Presidential elections last year, complete with Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton impersonators! To hear 46 brass and percussion players from years 7-13 was very inspiring, and it maybe some of our children will one day be that good!
