Generous music teachers to stage free concertApril 26th, 2018
Generous music teachers from Monmouth School for Girls will be staging a free concert of solo and ensemble pieces, some involving pupils, to raise money for charity.
The school’s visiting instrumental and singing teachers, otherwise known as the Peris, are inviting parents and pupils to watch them play and sing in the Main Hall on Thursday 10th May at 7pm.
Teachers from the Music department will be playing various instruments, while Monmouth School for Girls’ Concert Choir is also due to perform.
After the performance, guests are invited to chat to the musicians over a glass of wine or juice and nibbles.
The evening will raise money for Music in Hospitals Wales and the programme promises to be diverse and wide-ranging, reflecting the broad tastes of teachers and pupils.
“Following the success of our Peri Concert in May 2016, we have decided to hold another,” explained Violin teacher, Mr Christopher Horner.
“This time, however, some teachers will be joined by pupils in duets, trios or perhaps larger numbers and the Concert Choir will also be performing.
“As musicians who like to perform, we see this will be an opportunity for you, the parents, your daughters, sons and friends, to get to know us through our music alongside a good number of pupils.”
Mr Horner added: “There may even be a chance to hear us playing and singing together.
“We hope to see a good number of you there as we’re really practising hard.”
A collection will be held on the evening with all donations going directly to Music in Hospitals Wales.
Mr Horner added: “We are delighted that Robert Aitken CBE, Director of the charity, will be speaking about its work which involves sending musicians to hospitals, care homes and rehabilitation centres in order that the life enhancing qualities of live music may be available to those otherwise unable to access its many benefits.”
