The last week of October sees the Christchurch School’s Music Festival on for 3 nights in the Horncastle Arena. We have a number of students performing each night, and our choir takes part on Oct 31st.
Please note that all students taking music lessons at Chisnallwood have the wonderful focus of performing at their itinerant night in week 7. The exact dates for each instrument will be published soon. Each night runs a series of simultaneous friendly short concerts followed by a prizegiving. It’s a great chance to show families what students have learnt, and to meet the itinerant teachers.
We had 3 students go on a successful tour to Dunedin in the holidays with the ChCh Boys Choir. Well done to Ryan Bell, Nic Ryan and Rory Humm.
