Sound of Success for School Pupils at Bellevue Music Festival

Posted on: 18 Mar 2013

On Friday 15 March, pupils from six schools across the UK, came together to perform at the University of Reading’s Great Hall, as part of Bellevue Education’s inaugural Music Festival.

The event, organised by music teachers from the schools which are all part of Bellevue Education, saw pupils showcasing their talent to an audience of parents and families.

Since preparations for the festival began in May last year, pupils and staff at each of the schools have rehearsed a variety of instrumental and vocal pieces.

The audience were captivated by pupils aged from 7 to 13, performing solo pieces as well group items, from school choirs to ensembles, and even a dance act.

Christopher Sanderson, Education Director at Bellevue Education said: “This was an enormously successful day culminating in over 200 pupils from across the country coming on stage to perform together.  The festival brought together a wealth of musical talent from across our schools and the opportunity to perform in front of a large audience, underlining the Bellevue philosophy that a broad, enriched curriculum plays a significant part in securing high academic standards.” 

The audience also enjoyed vocal performances by the massed choirs, involving all participants from each school, as well as a rendition of “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” by teaching staff.

Generous donations collected at the end of the concert will go towards next year’s Bellevue Music Festival.
