Large attendance at Prep Schools’ Strings Day
Over 140 young musicians from local Prep Schools, accompanied by their teachers, visited the College to take part in a day-long workshop, which culminated in a concert where they played together as a string orchestra.
After morning rehearsals, and lunch, and following afternoon tea for parents and guests in Main Hall, the youngsters gave their own performance in Big School, including music from the Harry Potter and James Bond films. For many, this was the first time they had played in public as part of such a large orchestra.
Schools participating in this year’s Strings Day were Aberdour, Banstead Prep, Chinthurst, Feltonfleet, Hampton Prep, Homefield, Micklefield, Newton Prep, Oakhyrst Grange, Rowan Prep, St Andrew’s Woking, Westbury House and Willington.
The day was run by Sebastian Johns, with Julia De Luca on piano, and Visiting Music Teachers.
