Assembly 7/10/2016

07 October 2016

Assembly this week opened with Taran Glazebrook becoming the first Caldicott musician to perform to the school on the wonderful Steinway concert grand which we are now privileged to own, and which is in the Centenary Hall. He played a short but very beautiful romantic piece called Erster Schmerz (First Sorrow) by Sergei Bortkiewicz, introducing it himself by explaining that he had performed it last Saturday at a schools coffee concert in Windsor Parish Church as part of the Windsor Festival. Thank you to Taran for his performance this morning, and for representing the school with distinction in Windsor during our Exeat last weekend. He is setting an excellent example to all our young musicians.
