Bellevue Music Festival

After months of preparation, the very first Bellevue Northern Music Festival took place on Monday 18th April 2016 at the Royal Northern College of Music.

The festival was a great success, with pupils from all four northern schools - Brabyns, Edenhurst, Forest Prep and Forest Park – showcasing their talents through a range of performances. Amongst many wonderful items scheduled, the audience were wowed by a beautiful choral piece by Lydia Kakabadse, a former Forest Preparatory School pupil who is now a composer. The programme also included two Samba Bands, a Ukelele Ensemble, various solos and a tremendous massed choral work involving all four schools, based on pupils’ ideas following an Able, Gifted & Talented project created specifically for this event.

Susan Wellings, Music Teacher at Forest Preparatory School, was the festival organiser and was delighted to see each school’s dedication and hard work come to musical fruition.

Susan said: “All the pupils across the four schools had worked so hard, over many months, to prepare their performances for the festival. The standard of these performances was extremely high and really did showcase the immense musical talents of our pupils. In addition, it highlighted the very strong and committed music teaching that takes place in the four northern Bellevue schools.

The feedback from the day has been exceptional, with the school communities absolutely buzzing about the quality and variety of performances, and the wonderful opportunity the festival provided the children. It was a brilliant day that will be remembered for a long time.”

Preparations are currently underway for the Bellevue Music Festival in 2018.
