Autumn Concert

Posted on November 30 2015

It was standing room only in the school hall at our Autumn Concert on Wednesday, 18 November.

With refreshments provided by the PTA beforehand, the scene was set for a lovely evening of live music.  There was plenty of musical talent on display and the audience was treated to a wide variety of musical styles – from Brazilian drumming to rock and roll, classical piano pieces and jazz and blues.  There was certainly something for everyone’s musical taste.

The evening began with a lively and loud performance from our Samba drumming club.  Children from Year 1 to 4 enjoyed performing many different rhythms to the steady beat of the surdo drums.  It was then the turn of Forest Park’s violin ensemble, who performed the opening of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.   After this followed a number of solo performances on guitar, violin, oboe, trumpet, piano and flute, with all the performers showcasing their musical talents and excellent performing skills.  Many of the children are working towards their music exams so this was a fantastic opportunity for them to perform in front of an audience.

One highlight of the evening was the ukulele group.  They gave a very enjoyable performance of ‘The Slidey Song’.  All the children had to strum and play at the same time, with some taking on solo singing parts as well.

As the evening continued, the guitarists wowed us with toe-tapping performances of ‘Wipe Out’ and ‘I love Rock and Roll’ and we heard some Jazz piano with the pieces ‘Moody Prawn Blues’ and ‘Minnie Mouse Hits Town.’ The Junior Choir closed the show with performances of ‘Count On Me’ and ‘Drop in the Ocean.’

It was a wonderful occasion for all involved and we would like to thank the instrumental teaching staff – Miss Lanch, Miss Gee, Miss Cosgrove, Mr Bowie and Mr Wilson for all their hard work and enthusiasm in preparing the children for the concert.
