Both Year 4 classes put in a stunning performance at the Southwark Schools Ukulele Festival staged at the Royal Festival Hall. We were also joined by some of our friends from the Year 5 Ukulele Club.
Plenty of preparation for the event was put in place by our expert ukulele teacher Joe. The class members have been rehearsing for this event since the start of the new term.
Sarah and Badgie’s class joined up with three other schools at the Royal Festival Hall. We were also surprised to find a professional band to help us with our performance! Year 4 were accompanied by a live drummer and a couple of amazing singers.
Our set list for the show was impressive. Eleven songs were played in total. These included contemporary songs by Sam Smith and Pharrell. The pupils also played some technical songs to showcase their ukulele techniques.
The feedback that we received from the concert was fantastic! It was great to see so many parents being able to give up their time to support the pupils. Many members of the public also came along to enjoy the show.
