We have had a delightful time, this afternoon, listening to the beautiful voice of soprano singer, Clare Tunney. Clare came to school with the choirmaster of the Durham Singers, Julian Wright, who is working with us to prepare a section of singing, from Haydn’s Creation. We will be rehearsing the piece, with the Durham Singers themselves, in Durham Cathedral, in November!

Children have had a visit, today, from members of the famous Halle Orchestra, who play worldwide. Pupils from Year 4 have been learning all about the instruments, in the string quartet, and have taken part in workshops, where we have played alongside the musicians. We are in practice, for a full performance, with both the Halle Orchestra and young musicians from across Durham County. What a unique opportunity!
