Orchestra Day at Nailsea School

Our fantastic musicians had a superb day at Nailsea School, learning three pieces and then performing them alongside students from the Nailsea School Orchestra to parents and other visitors. It was a great opportunity for our pupils to see what sort of things they might be doing at secondary school in a few years' time and has hopefully inspired them to keep up all that practice!

We hope you enjoyed the concert and will enjoy the photographs below:

Summer Concert 2018

Well done to our stunning musicians who performed at the summer concert in a very hot and stuffy school hall yesterday! The standard of music making just gets better and better. The school orchestra, under Mrs Heathcote's baton, played three pieces to an excellent standard and the range of solo performance, duets and ensemble pieces was very high. Musical instruments can often behave in a strange way in the heat, but this did not affect the performers today who bravely took to the stage. It takes a lot of courage to do that!

 

I hope you enjoy the photographs! Thank you for your continued support of your children's music making.

 

Year 6 musicians will each receive a special certificate in recognition of their commitment to music making and/or being a member of the school orchestra; one lucky recipient will also receive the special glass trophy as 'Musician of the Year'.

MAWS Concert 2018

Well done to the 60+ pupils from Years 4, 5 & 6 who performed at last night's 43rd 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 from popular films including The Greatest Showman, Trolls, Beauty and the Beast, to name but a few. There was also a lovely selection of songs to commemorate 100 years since the end of World War I.

 

Pieces played by the massed guitar group, string ensemble and windband were of a very high standard and included many players from Golden Valley.

 

Enjoy the photographs - apologies for the quality though, it is tricky to take shots without a flash from so far back!

Winter Music Concert December 2017

Well done to all of the musicians who participated in the winter music concert - it really was a lovely event with many soloists, group pieces and three pieces by the school orchestra. Many of the tunes played had a Christmas theme, including two of the orchestra's pieces: 'Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer' and 'White Christmas'.

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...
