AGGS First Music Festival

AGGS Music festival, October 2015

Congratulations to all 160 performers who took part today in our very first ever AGGS Music festival. It was wonderful to hear so many wonderful performances on a huge variety of instruments from Y7 through to Y13, and also to see really large audiences, made of up of parents and other AGGS students/staff.

Many thanks to our peripatetic music teachers, who coach very many of our girls; to Mr Aidan Bradley and Mrs Helen Bray for their insightful and entertaining adjudication throughout the day; to Mrs Gillibrand, Miss Wright for helping with the smooth running of the festival and to Mrs Dickinson for her accompanying.
