Studio to Stage: School Orchestra Resonate at the Queen’s Hall

A wonderful opportunity for our children to participate in this showcase event, in a prestigious venue, celebrating young people’s talents in music, drama and dance with schools from across the city. Our pupils were expertly prepared for the Resonate: Studio to Stage concert at the Queen’s Hall on Monday 30th March by Mrs Campbell and they all made us truly proud, rising admirably to the occasion by performing one of the BBC Ten Pieces: Grieg’s “In the Hall of the Mountain King.” Pupils also performed “Greensleeves” and thoroughly deserved their rousing applause.

Many thanks to Lucy Vaughan (Principal Officer Creative Learning) and Carla Hay (Youth Music Initiative Projects Assistant) for inviting us to take part and to the huge behind-the-scenes team who provided such high quality sound and lighting, making everything run so smoothly. Thank you to Mrs Samanda Campbell who led and conducted the orchestra superbly, accompanied by Mrs Ruth McVicker on piano. Thanks also to Mrs Katherine Peace for escorting and playing alongside the pupils and to all the families who came along to support and celebrate the children’s hard work and achievement. A lovely way to end the term and we look forward to hearing the Orchestra and other musical ensembles perform on May 13th at a showcase organised by the Parent Council.
