The spring term came to a close at Michael Faraday School with a wonderful celebration of the musical talents that the school is able to boast. Brass Band, Ukulele Club and the Michael Faraday School Choir – spring seemed like the perfect opportunity to share and celebrate all that we have achieved so far in the school with our many musical talents.
The Michael Faraday Brass Band is well established. With over a decade of experience in being able to provide this after school tuition for our pupils, the Brass Band has a brilliant reputation around the borough of Southwark and beyond. We are regularly invited to perform at different events around London. Sometimes though it is just great to showcase in front of our school friends what can be achieved. Many, many thanks to May, our brilliant Brass Band Leader who has made the Michael Faraday Brass Band the success story that it is today.
The Michael Faraday School Choir is another musical group that we were proud to introduce at the Spring Music Concert. This is a dedicated group of singers, with representation from Year 1 through until Year 6. We are keen for the elder pupils to take responsibility within this group. Working alongside the esteemed musical conductor John Webb, we encourage the Year 6 pupils to lead various singing sessions.
Like the Brass Band, the Michael Faraday Choir regularly makes trips out into our local community. A recent invite came via our friends at the Camberwell Care Home. The Choir was asked to sing to a selection of songs to the residents, to help add a little variety to their day. We were thrilled to get such a generous and kind response from the residents.
And finally we have the wonderful Michael Faraday Ukulele Orchestra. Weekly lessons once again take place. We find that the instrument is the perfect introduction for all pupils of all abilities who may want to consider stepping up to playing the guitar.
We are proud to be able to share some of the outstanding musical contributions that took place as part of the Michael Faraday Spring Musical Concert.
