Well done to the very talented musicians who took part in today's Summer Concert. Our 36 pupil orchestra delighted us with three pieces, including Hedwig's theme from Harry Potter and Yellow Submarine. There was a large number of soloists, duets and ensemble pieces. We are very lucky to have such keen musicians at our school who perform with great confidence - never underestimate how much courage this takes!
Well done to the 60 pupils from Years 4, 5 & 6 who performed at last night's 42nd MAWS concert at the Colston Hall in Bristol. The concert was once again a real spectacle, with quality singing, dancing and ensemble playing. The audience was entertained with music inspired by books from authors such as Roald Dahl, Rudyard Kipling, J.K. Rowling and Ian Fleming, to name but a few. Enjoy the photographs - apologies for the quality though, it is tricky to take shots without a flash from so far back!
Well done to all of our performers today. The standard of music playing was exceptional, with some very accomplished solo and group pieces - very impressive! The orchestra played Drunken Sailor and a Christmas Medley very well indeed, accompanied by Mrs Lyalle.
A first was the orchestra accompanying the school choir for Silent Night...this was a lovely part of the concert.
Many thanks to Mrs Dean for her organisational skills and to all of our visiting music teachers for their dedication and hard work.
Orchestra Day at Nailsea School
Nailsea School invited local primary schools to take part in a 'from scratch' orchestra day. We took along 40, brilliantly behaved musicians and they spent the morning rehearsing in small groups, before coming together in the afternoon to rehearse as a whole orchestra, alongside many other primary and secondary pupils. The performance of three pieces was very impressive, and the audience also enjoyed some performances by soloists and ensembles from Nailsea School.
We hope you enjoy the photographs...
Orchestra Day November 2015
Members of Golden Valley School orchestra were recently invited to spend a day at Nailsea School, working alongside older music students to learn three orchestral pieces, which were then performed to parents during the afternoon. The experience was very exciting and rewarding for the children and the opportunity to perform alongside more experienced musicians taught them so much.
We were very proud to send such a large group of talented musicians to this event... thank you parents for your continued support!
