7 July 2017

Dear Parents and Carers,

We have had several special music events at Kells Lane this week. We began on Tuesday afternoon with an extraordinary concert full of impressive performances by our musicians. We enjoyed a variety of pieces by guitar, string, keyboard and brass players, alongside our stunning orchestra. Well done to all of our musicians; you made me very proud.

On Wednesday evening, the musicians took part in a summer concert at Joseph Swan Academy. There were individual and group performances, including an opportunity to play alongside the Band and Bugles of Durham Army Cadet Force led by Major Colin Miller. I would like to thank Mr Miller and Miss Scott for providing this opportunity for our children; we are looking forward to taking part in a special remembrance tribute in the autumn term.

The children worked really hard in preparation for these events and would like to thank you for coming to support their performances.

I would also like to thank our music teachers Mrs Cuggy and Mr and Mrs Weaver for their input throughout the year.

The Kells Lane String Orchestra were exceptionally good this week. I am very grateful to Mrs Slater and her team of parents who volunteer every Tuesday morning to promote such musical confidence and excellence. Thank you all.





Have a good weekend.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
