This week saw a trip to London to see our eldest son play with his School Brass Band at the Royal Albert Hall. They were taking part in a concert called ‘Echoes 5’ organised by Bucks County Council Music Services, along with 59 other Primary Schools. There was lots of singing, African Drums, Woodwind and Brass. It was a truly amazing experience to see schools working together in such a great way after such limited rehearsal time – they all spent lots of time rehearsing their own parts in school, but only came together for one full rehearsal.
Great to see music in Schools being promoted and supported in such a positive way in a time where local government services are struggling with cuts.
