The musical activities began this term with the Bowdon Music Festival which involved the Senior Choir and many solo-

ists from the Juniors. The Choir competed against seven other choirs and was awarded Second Place by adjudicator

Steven Roberts. The soloists also did very well with Ben Wood, year 6 being placed third, Anoop Jois, year 4 placing

second and Rory Hobbs, year 6, placing first in their individual classes.

All three choirs performed in the Altrincham Music

festival and whilst this is not a competitive event,

the boys received some hugely positive feedback-

from the adjudicator. We held an exam visit from

the ABRSM and all the boys achieved high grades

in their instrumental exams. Thanks must go to Mr

King, Mr Price, Miss Sheldon, Mrs Goss and Mr

Harper for their hard work in preparing the boys.

Towards the end of term, we held the Junior Music

evening where we were treated to performances from

the Junior and Senior Choir, Guitar Group, String

Ensemble, Wind Group and the School Orchestra. All of

the boys played wonderfully and gave interesting and

committed performances. Our Easter Service was a

particularly enjoyable morning. The Junior boys gave a

touching performance of the Lord’s Prayer in an original

setting which made use of their French lessons with

Mrs Hammond. The infants gave a very lively rendition

of Brand New Frame of Mind and the EYFS performed

Out of the Cave with staggering confidence. Mr Potts

had selected text from Emily Bronte which I put to

music for the whole school to sing; a perfect end to a

busy term.
