Music at Connaught
Children love music and our kids are no exception.
Mr Blake is our wonderful Musical Director and has involved our children in many music projects. One of these initiatives is an after school opportunity for children to be involved in the COSMOS choir.
St George’s Education & Learning Programme funds and manages the Cosmos Children’s Community Choir of South Bristol, an initiative we began back in 2009. Since then, over 150 young people aged 8 – 13 from a range of schools in the area have benefited from the ‘Cosmos experience’, growing in confidence and singing ability through weekly rehearsals led by the choir’s inspirational musical director Mark Lawrence and assisted by the choir’s co-ordinator Caitlin Callahan. Performance opportunities have included regular appearances at St George’s, concerts in the Colston Hall foyer, at the Harbourside, at Clifton College and, closer to home, at Merchants’ Academy and in local primary schools. If your child would like to join please ask in the School Office.
Preludes Music also work with our children in school. Prelude work with whole classes and also small groups and introduce the children to a wide variety of instruments.
Mr Blake also organises a Ukele Class.
