Lady Bankes Junior School's Music Concert

On Monday, June 27th. a concert was held in the school hall to showcase the pupils' music talents.

Mr. Ivor Johnstone, Interim Head Teacher, welcomed the parents and visitors and informed them that one sixth of the school's pupils were currently learning to play a musical instrument. They are taught by a valued group of peripatetic teachers from the Hillingdon Music Service.

Mrs. Kate Needs, the school's Head Teacher from September, introduced the first item which was a solo piano performance by Amy Newton which was followed by another piano solo by Ross Bell.

Next on the programme were a series of violin solos. Each pupil confidently introduced themselves and their pieces before they performed. One memorable performance of the evening was given by Daniel Macholl, Year 3, who played the haunting Irish tune Danny Boy on the violin. This was a beautiful rendition by one so young. Daniel then played A Song of Erin on the piano with equal aplomb.

The concert drew to a close with a very confident solo saxophone performance by Phoenix Hoare, Year 6.

It was a very enjoyable evening and an impressive display of the pupils' diverse musical talents.
