Music Celebration Assembly

All our musicians came together with a celebration of their musical talents on Wednesday 21st December. The whole school and parents were entertained with various renditions of some of our favourite Christmas tunes and with some special guest appearances too!

The choir set the tone with two of their favourite songs: ‘Somewhere only we know’ and ‘Fight Song.’

The choir have had a very busy year so far with performances inside and outside of school; they are very much in demand. The children love performing and are very enthusiastic about their singing.

With the help of Luke and Adam from Fidler music, Year 6 Keyboards played ‘Just The Way You Are’ by Bruno Mars and Year 5 Ukeleles serenaded us with their version of ‘Rock-a-Bye Baby’ by Clean Bandit.

Joel, Josh and George, our advanced guitar group, played ‘Under Pressure’ and our newest guitar players, who have only been practicing for about 6 weeks, played ‘We Will Rock You’. A great performance by everyone!

Our ‘after school key board group’, with the help of Mrs Strafford and Mrs McKeown, played individual solos of ‘We Wish You  Merry Christmas’ – a very brave performance from all of the children and some great potential there!

And then a family affair from the Jackson family; George, accompanied by his dad on the piano and Elliot on the bells, gave a fantastic performance of ‘Jingle Bells’ on the cornet. It was a very impressive performance and great to see other instruments in the mix. This was followed by an amazing performance from Tim (Mrs Jackson’s husband) on the trombone, playing ‘All I want for Christmas, is you...’ This was amazing and lifted the roof with everyone joining in the chorus and clapping along!

And last, but by no means least, Isaac Nykorak entertained us with three pieces on the piano: (accompanied by Mrs Dickson) ‘Swans on the Lake’, ‘Zippity doo daa’ and ‘Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer’.

An amazing performance Isaac and very brave to perform on your own in front of such a big audience – well done!

Well done to everyone who took part in the music celebration assembly. It was fantastic to see so many children involved in so many different music activities. Music is such an important part of our school ethos and something we pride ourselves in at St George’s.

The celebrations ended with an old time favourite for everyone to join in -  ‘Jingle Bells’ accompanied by Luke on the piano and Adam on the guitar. An amazing morning of music celebration - well done everyone!
