Summer Concert

This week saw the annual Summer Concert at St Nicholas Church in Ash. The school’s Choir, Chamber Choir, Orchestra, String Orchestra and Recorder Club all performed, along with several children who were soloists. There was quite a mix of music, from Handel, Beethoven and Tchaikovsky to Mister Blue Sky and a song composed by our very own Honor! Thank you from Mr Ainsworth to all children involved – you are all superstars!

Lower School Twilight

On Wednesday there was a first Twilight Concert specifically for children in Early Years and Lower School. Children in Sandcastles and Year R did some wonderful singing while Years 1 and 2 also sang, along with playing the recorder. There was also a performance opportunity for children who come to Recorder Club and Singing Club, along with several children who were soloists. Well done to all involved!

What our parents said!

Last night’s concert was wonderful. What an amazing job Mr Ainsworth, Mrs Woodhead et al and the kids did... I felt quite emotional and Freddie was on such a high on the way home....... lovely, lovely

 I spoke to Mr Ainsworth this morning to congratulate him on the fantastic Summer Concert.  The children were all amazing, so much talent and the orchestra has made amazing progress since last September.  Last night’s finale was quite spectacular!

 Watching the concert, what struck me was that (statistically at least) children at St Faiths are no more talented than others.  The huge difference St Faiths makes is that those talents are firstly identified, and then nurtured and encouraged; followed by many opportunities to perform and share music with the school community.  In my experience that is rare and the dedication of Mr Ainsworth is invaluable in achieving this. 

 I am quite sure St Faith's will foster a life-long love for music in Lottie and, who knows, maybe a future music-related career.
