Chairman’s Year of Music Concert

Lydia Brown and Micha Thompson took part in a wonderful music event at Freegrounds Junior School to celebrate the Chairman’s Year of Music. Taking their instruments with them, and accompanied by Mrs Keith – thank you for walking with us! – and myself, they joined children from other local schools to play a selection of pieces written especially for the event. I eagerly took up the offer of a spare recorder and joined in the fun – it was an amazing feeling being part of such a fantastic event.

After rehearsing with the Hampshire Music Service specialist, who had actually written the pieces, and a quick break, we were joined by family members, who had come to watch the performance. Lydia and Micha were superstars and clearly loved taking part – they grinned all the way through the afternoon! Everyone agreed it had been a great opportunity to share a love of music and plans are already under way for future events, so watch this space!…
