On Monday October 6th, three of our musicians attended a festival at Radley College for Prep School Wind and Brass instrumentalists. J Ewart Smith (French Horn, T Parker (Alto Saxophone0 and A Shin (Bb Trumpet) all worked hard during the day and enjoyed being with other musicians for the day to rehearse and perform. They spent half the day in sectional rehearsals and half the day as a Big Band, with a performance of all the music for parents and staff. There was an entertaining and varied programme, and the quality of performances was very good.
Other schools who attended were Moulsford, Abingdon Prep, Summer Fields, Elstree, Ludgrove, Horris Hill and St Hughes. Our thanks to Mr Car 9Head of Wind and Brass at Radley College) and his team of instrumental teachers for their hard work and enthusiasm for the students music making. Our three boys certainly enjoyed the day, one of them complaining that his cheeks hurt afterwards and another that his hands were tired!
