Being a music teacher at Christmas is just wonderful. I have had the privilege of watching the children perform in a fabulous range of events, both at school and in our local community.Well done to all our infants for their great performance of ‘A Shepherd’s delight.’ Seeing our youngest children acting out the story of the Nativity always brings a tear to the eye – the acting, singing and costumes were all brilliant so thanks to everybody involved. Our Junior children did a super performance of ‘Snow White’ where once again the acting, singing and costumes were all of the highest standard. Thank you to all the parents for supporting these events, the children always love performing to an audience.
December is always a busy time for the children, and our Choral group have been in great demand! Last week we visited Spurr House Nursing home to give a concert to the elderly residents and staff. Seeing the faces on these people as the children sing so beautifully is wonderful to watch. The children thoroughly enjoy this visit, especially the interaction afterwards with the residents, and of course the snacks and drinks we are also very kindly given!
I have just returned from the Parish church where the Unsworth Choral group are to combine with 3 other choirs in our music collaborative to raise money for Bury hospice. This Carol service will make over £1000 for the Hospice so again thanks to all who are supporting this event. The standard of the singing is outstanding by all four choirs, where combined with a Brass Band and Bury Community Choir (starring Mr French) we hopefully will give our audience an evening to remember. (Report to follow in the next blog).
Can I take this opportunity to thank all the children for preparing so thoroughly for every musical event, and I look forward to another fun packed year of music making in 2014.
