Pupil Concerts 2024

What a fabulous concert we had yesterday – 31 super performances… in 2 concerts. Every stage of learning performed from simple 5 note tunes and duets, through all the grades to the beautiful Sonata Pathetique, 1st 2 movts from the DipLCM syllabus. We had flute duets, recorder bopping alongs, and an epic impromptu take on Fleetwood Mac. A true afternoon of variety – very proud of everyone. Total for the Sheffield Children’s Hospital is £219 – fab work everyone!

Thank you to Judith Jones for providing lots of cups of tea and juice, and to all my lovely student and parent bakers!

Pupil Concert thanks 2022

Huge thank you to everyone who helped our students perform this weekend. It’s been such a long time since we had the chance to play to one another. We played in 3 smaller groups this year, which made it a super encouraging environment. Some fabulous playing – individual items and duets, everyone chose something they loved to play. We’ve collected cash and online donations, and sent £150 to the Sheffield Children’s Hospital, which is just fantastic.

Thank you to St. Andrew’s Psalter Lane church, to Debbie and Helen for being wonderful hosts. And also to Fiona and Jenna who did an amazing job serving refreshments and helping me clear up.
