Congratulations to Sophia, Isla, Lily, Amelie, Dominik, Connor and Milo who took part in the orchestra day at Headington Girls School on 20th June. The day started with the children being presented with four pieces of music they had never seen before and straight away being asked to play. The children were excellent and rose to the challenge of sight-reading music. Following two hour-long rehearsals in the morning, the children were treated to a delicious lunch and time to explore the grounds of the school. In the afternoon, the whole orchestra had one final rehearsal before performing in a concert for parents. The quality of the instrument playing and the sound the orchestra produced after such a short time rehearsing were amazing and I was extremely proud of the children. Well done!
It was a really fun day and enjoyable for musicians. – Connor
I was one of the most exciting days I have ever had in my life. – Amelie
The food was really tasty and it was nice to play with lots of other children in an orchestra. – Lily
Such a privilege to work with young musicians from some of our local primary schools at our Young Orchestral Day – lovely to see children from St Aloysius, Botley, Horspath, Frieth, St Andrew's and our own @HSO_PrepSch #ilovemusic #schoolstogether pic.twitter.com/Ew7Xg2uK8t
