The children in Pre-Prep gave an incredible performance at their summer concert. The theme was the “Proms” and children were taught many famous songs from the Music Halls such as “Don’t Dilly Dally on the Way”, “Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside” and “Pack up your troubles” along with iconic classics from the Concert Halls such as “Land of Hope and Glory” by Edward Elgar and “Jerusalem” by Hubert Parry. One of our wonderful music specialists, Mr Denton, donned a hat in the style of Lord Admiral Nelson for his wonderful solo in a rousing rendition of “Rule, Britannia!”.
It’s not often that children as young as four are given the opportunity to sing such incredible pieces. Ably supported by a very talented staff band; it certainly has to have been the most ambitious concert programme ever undertaken by Pre-Prep, but they rose to the occasion fabulously!
The aim of the performance was to give the children an authentic proms experience with bunting, flags and crowns and to teach songs from our heritage to the next generation so that they continue to be sung for many years to come.
