The Sounds of the Orchestra!

Our Key Stage 1 pupils had the opportunity to come together as an ensemble to produce a piece of music and perform at St. Margaret's Church Horsforth. Our piece was inspired by the film 'Frozen'. Can you guess the weather by listening to the music?

The choir will always welcome new members. If your child feels they would like to join please see Miss Johnson.
Music Appreciation Week

On the 4th July we held our first 'Music Appreciation' week. Each year group performed to their parents in a series of concerts that gave the children the opportunity to perform in front of an audience. We also hosted a 'Junior Prom Day'. We invited West End Primary school's orchestra to join our band and work together for the day. We also invited some musicians from Horsforth school to come and help our younger children. The day ended with a magnificent 'Prom'. All of the children loved being involved in such a fabulous day of music making! We will be hosting the event again next year and we will be sure to have the bunting and flags out for our first birthday prom day! Here are a selection of videos that showcase the talents of our young musicians!

The School Band Trip to Leeds Town Hall

The school band went on a trip to Leeds Town Hall to watch The City of Leeds Youth Music Prom performed by young musicians from across Leeds. The trip was organised to inspire our newly formed band so they could see what is possible when performing individually and with others. The band certainly were inspired especially when they saw their teacher Mr Duffy directing the Leeds Youth Jazz Orchestra and Big Band! Watch these videos to see the great atmosphere at Leeds Town Hall!!
