Letter of thanks

Newark Dragon Boat Festival - September 2021

The Senior Choir and Chamber Choir performed at the Newark Dragon Boat Festival at the Riverside. There were a few nerves as this was the first performance they had done in public for awhile, due to COVID-19. The children did an amazing job - well done! You can listen to a couple of the songs they performed below.

9th September - Orchestra have already begun rehearsing this week and they sounded fab! New members have been invited by letter and should arrive from 7:50am on Wednesdays to start rehearsing from 8:00am.


Letters have been sent out for those KS2 children that are interested in beginning instrumental lessons. Those children that have applied will have a trial lesson in the next few weeks. Unfortunately not all children that have applied will be able to learn due to limited numbers of instruments and teacher timetables. Those that are not selected will be placed on a waiting list.

Please visit our video page to watch our virtual Summer concert! All year groups are singing as well as the orchestra and choirs. We are very proud of the fact that music has managed to continue at Barnby road during recent challenging times. All singing takes place in year group bubbles and our orchestra is socially distanced in the large sports hall.
