This year our Strawberries and wine concert was another resounding success and all of the children taking part should feel immensely proud of themselves. Although this was Fellside’s 15th Strawberries and Wine concert, it was the first one for all of our peripatetic team of teachers. We thank them for all of their hard work and dedication in preparing the children to deliver such professional and polished performances.
The concert started with a demonstration of the whole class violin tuition that has taken place in Year 2, and was followed by a solo performance by Leo.
Year 3 then gave a thoroughly entertaining whole class performance on the recorder, and then every child receiving tuition at Fellside was given the opportunity to perform. In addition to this we were treat to some interludes by several of our very talented pianists.
Towards the end of the concert there was a guest performance by Jessica, who is currently in Year 7 at Whickham School, and was our musician of the year 2014. Jessica then assisted Mrs Hood in presenting our 2015 winners with their awards, and the concert was concluded with a stunning rendition of Wieniawski Caprice op. 18 No 4 by Leia on violin.
The winners of musical awards were:
Cello – Rose – Year 6
Woodwind – Annie – Year 6
Guitar – Eloise – Year 6
Violin – Sophie – Year 4
Overall Musician of the year – Emma – Year 6
Congratulations to you all!
