Uppingham Music Day 2020

A group of twenty four musicians accompanied by Mrs Reveley, Miss Woodbridge and Miss Eales, travelled to Uppingham on Thursday for their annual Prep Schools Music Day. Our instrumentalists each played one of the following instruments: violin, cello, flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, euphonium, tuba and drums. The theme was ‘Out of this World’ and the music played included Star Wars,  Blues Brothers Review, Fly me to the Moon, The Planets by Holst and Forge of the Vulcan.

Parents arrived mid afternoon for the performance which was given by nearly 300 children from sixteen schools. The concert was exhilarating, the sound was huge and the focus of the children was exceptional. Those involved received an Uppingham badge, drawstring bag and pencil in Assembly this morning. The Uppingham tuck shop made good sales too!  Congratulations to all who took part – it was a brilliant day!
