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.
Bristol Music Service
Bristol Music Service also work with our Year 6 children for two terms each year. They have the opportunity of becoming a Rock Band and perform for Oasis Connaught at the end of the year.
Mr Blake also organises a Ukele Class.
