Crescent Hosts Its First Virtual Concert
Our Crescent family always enjoys our school concerts, with so many wonderful performances by our young musicians. So, although the country may be in lockdown, Director of Music, Julie Barnes, was determined that Crescent’s music lovers weren’t going to miss out on their termly treat.
So thanks to her dedication and with a bit of help from technology, the Crescent School will shortly present 22 talented young musicians in its first ever ‘Socially Distanced Virtual Concert’.
Each of the children has pre-recorded their concert performances at home and sent the video through to Mrs Barnes. The individual clips have been put together into a programme of pieces. They include musicians from Year 2 through to Year 6 and a mix of traditional and contemporary pieces, and we think this concert is going to be inspiring and amazing.
Comments Mrs Barnes “The lockdown was certainly not going to stop us having our concert. They are always such a highlight of the term. The children were all incredible, they really pulled out all the stops and put together in the one video, well we could just be performing in the school hall. Our first ‘virtual’ concert will capture everyone’s imagination.”
Introduced by Mrs Barnes, the concert includes instantly recognisable favourites such as The Pink Panther, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Fly Me To The Moon, Dr Who and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
A link to the concert will be shared with parents next week. Well done to all of the participants, it is going to be wonderful entertainment for us all!!
