Junior Schools’ Music Workshop Day 2019
Over 50 junior schoolchildren from 19 local primary schools took part in the annual Junior Schools’ Music Workshop Day. Members of Hampton Music Department, ably supported by over 30 Hampton musicians, led the primary school pupils in a day of music-making which included singing, woodwind, guitar, brass and percussion.
After working hard during rehearsal sessions, the young instrumentalists and singers entertained family and friends in a concert which included music from Raiders of the Lost Ark, a rousing performance of the Can Can by the String Ensemble and culminated in a performance of Oom Pah Pah! from Oliver! by all those on stage.
Organiser of the event, Music teacher Mrs Laura Oldfield, warmly praised all those involved:
It was wonderful to see so many young, talented musicians from across the local area, making the most of the day and performing in an enjoyable concert for parents and staff.
