Gamelan Music Workshops
Gamelan is the traditional music of Indonesia and an ensemble includes gongs, metallophones and drums of various shapes and sizes, which are mounted on beautifully carved and painted wooden frames.  Through the Gloucester Music Academy we have been able to secure 10 free Gamelan workshop sessions for the children in Chestnut Class.  The first and last sessions will be held in Gloucester at the music centre and the remaining sessions will be carried out in school. We very much look forward to hearing how their workshop sessions go.
Young Voices
We took a group of junior children to Birmingham to take part in the Young Voices Concert.  It was an opportunity for them to sing as part of a massive choir made up of hundreds of other children.  It was a long day but it was thoroughly enjoyed by all!
