Kickstarting the festive season with our Autumn Concert

Prep School Director of Music Mr James Smith reflects on a stellar start to Clayesmore’s Christmas music-making in 2016:

“A tremendous range of choral and instrumental music was performed to an appreciative audience in the Chapel at our annual Autumn Concert. Continuing on the theme from last year, we concluded with a celebration of festive music to get us in the mood for Christmas. Many of the children were adorned in festive accessories which helped to add to the atmosphere.

The standard of music from our ensembles, both small and large, was, once again, very high for this stage in the year. Full credit must, therefore, be given to all the children for their efforts, both on the day and to their commitment to rehearsals, which has been excellent. Thanks must go to Mrs Coplan, Mr Hind, Mr Spiller, Mrs Goodman and Mr Hill for all their help in preparing the children and ensembles for this Concert.”
