The very first Orchestral and Instrumental Evening was held on Monday November 20 at 7.30 pm in the Auditorium. Showcasing their talents were Soh Sharp Orchestra, Junior Band, Yr 6 Cello Ensemble, Guitar Ensemble, Flute Ensemble, Senior Strings and Woodwind, Fah Out Jazz Band, and Soloists. The warm appreciative audience were able to see the coming together of all the hours of practise that goes into learning an instrument and rehearsing together.
Many parents and friends were impressed by the dedication, and musicality that was demonstrated in all ensembles. All soloists entertained and demonstrated their commitment to practise and their development of skills as musicians.
Whilst I was backstage and front of stage, it was wonderful to see so many students displaying the attitudes of respect, creativity, co-operation, confidence, commitment and appreciation.
It is wonderful to be part of Performing Arts at Immanuel Primary School and to work with so many happy, excited students, sharing their learning with each other and their audience. It is a great joy to witness and be part of music making here at Immanuel!
