Space to compose.
There was much excitement just before Half Term when our new Music Room was unveiled. Work had taken place over the Summer holidays and two ribbon-cutting ceremonies saw the official opening – one for the Seniors and one for the Juniors.
Juniors: cutting the ribbon!
Describing the facilities available in the new Music Room: Mr Powell, Bursar, makes a speech.
Dr Higgins, Director of Music, commented: ‘It is wonderful to have a designated room which incorporates our Mac Suite with Casio keyboards and our brand new Kawai piano. It is exciting to work in a room which will cater for composing, history and keyboard work which will enable the girls to learn music literacy, for example notation’.
Senior ribbon cutting!
The new Music Room allows for the recording of the girls’ digital compositions and, with the original Music Room now cleared of all computers, large scale practical work is being carried out there, including our music ensembles, Samba drumming and djembe (African drumming) – already the sounds of choral rehearsals have been heard from our upcoming 2019 production, ‘Chicago’!
