We hope you enjoy these photos of the second of three evenings of the String Festival 2016. String players participating were from Cedars Manor, Earlsmead, Glebe, Grimsdyke, Marlborough, Norbury, Pinner Park, Priestmead, Roxbourne, Vaughan, Welldon Park and Whitefriars. Special guest group was Rooks Heath College String Ensemble who wowed us with music from Slumdog Millionaire.
Welcome to photos from the final day of the 2016 String Festival! Starring Belmont, Elmgrove, Heathland, Longfield, Roxeth, St Anselm’s, St John Fisher, St Teresa’s, Weald Rise and Whitchurch with a special guest performance by Whitmore String Ensemble, playing the fiendishly difficult ‘Libertango’ by Astor Piazzolla!
An amazing finale to a great three days of rehearsing and concerts - starring violinists, viola players and cellists from Earlsmead, Elmgrove, Glebe, Grimsdyke, Heathland, Longfield, Roxeth, St. Anselms RC, St. Teresa's RC, Stag Lane, Whitchurch and Whitefriars schools! Finn Lancaster accompanied on the drum kit - thank you Finn - and Grimsdyke Choir sang beautifully! A big chocolate bunny, flowers, a card and a CD were presented to Mr. Moss and Mrs. Howson to say 'thank you' on behalf of the (approximately) 5000 children they have taught for Harrow Music Service 40+ years!
The second of the three String Festivals, starring violinists, viola players, cellists and one heroic double bass player from the following schools: Aylward, Kenmore Park, Norbury, Pinner Park, Priestmead, Roxbourne, St. George's RC and St. John's C of E. Well done! Thanks to Pinner Park Choir for singing so well and to Ethan Roberts for accompanying the concert on the drum kit!
