After months of preparation, the 2018 Bellevue Northern Music Festival took place on Monday 12th March at the Royal Northern College of Music.
The Festival was a great success, with Year 3 and 4 children from Brabyns, along with the Bellevue's three other northern prep schools (Edenhurst, Forest Prep and Forest Park) – showcasing their talents through a range of performances.
The programme included a Gamelan group, Fife Ensemble, piano trio, various solos and three massed choral works involving all four schools.
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: "The feedback from the festival has been outstanding, with the school communities absolutely buzzing about the quality and variety of performances, and the wonderful opportunity the festival provided the children.
All the pupils across the four schools worked very hard, over many months, to prepare their performances. The standard 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. It was a brilliant day that will be remembered for a long time."
