Oakham School hosted a wonderful Prep School Music Day on 6 October for singers, woodwind, brass and percussion players. It was meticulously organised and an inspirational day for us all. The theme of the music was space and we heard pieces from Star Wars, Toy Story, Thunderbirds and more. There was super coaching from a huge number of the Oakham School music staff and a great atmosphere amongst all the children. The singers tackled some very tricky music with superb energy and I never heard a complaint that a lot of it was quite high and rhythmically complex. The wind, brass and percussion players performed with a fabulous sense of rhythm and drama.
I was enormously proud of all our pupils in the performance for being part of something so special. It is always good for our children to see that others are also learning singing and musical instruments and that musical development continues at such a high standard into the senior schools.
It was lovely to see so many parents and siblings at the final concert. Thanks also to Miss Hardy, Mrs Thompson and Mr Hudson for supporting both our pupils and others in the rehearsals and concert.
