Summer Music Concert - July 2019

The Golden Valley musicians presented a wonderful concert this week to mark the end of another excellent year of music making. I am always impressed with how Mrs Heathcote's patience and tuition transforms a 'young' orchestra into an accomplished ensemble, only to lose the experienced Year 6 players again as they transfer to secondary school.

 

It was lovely to hear from the majority of our guitar players who played pieces in groups and also the pupils who played solos and duets so bravely. In the heat of the hall, you all coped brilliantly!

 

Enjoy the photographs!

A great afternoon with the Good Afternoon Choir!

We were delighted to welcome the Good afternoon Choir and their leader Ben England to Golden Valley School before the Easter break for a fantastic workshop. Both choirs taught each other songs, and worked together brilliantly to put on a superb performance to parents and visitors. Thank you so much to all involved... we look forward to the next joint venture!

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:

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!

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...
