Music at the AGGS Summer Fair

Summer Fair, June 2017
Summer Fair, June 2017

Students from Y7-13 performed informally this year at the Summer Fair both in the hall and outside in the Centenary Garden. They provided us with around 2 hours of music, including the recorder ensemble, and students playing piano/singing. This was a new initiative and it provided a lovely atmosphere at the fair.

Calling all Grade 5+ pianists!

Calling all Pianists

Care homes in Timperley and Partington are looking for sixth former pianists to play the piano for 2 hours per week, as relaxation for their elderly guests.

An ideal opportunity if anyone is looking for Duke of Edinburgh placements or to earn a small amount of pocket money.

Please contact Diane Frisk at diane.frisk@kingsleyhealthcare.co.uk if you are interested in finding out more.

A2 Composition Coursework and Recordings

Piccadilly String Quartet with Ruby and Beth

Congratulations to our Y13 musicians who have now completed their A2 composition coursework. They have spent this year listening to music as inspiration and have practised using more advanced harmony and compositional writing. This has resulted in these great pieces of which they should all be very proud.

Corrie G, Miriam B, Beth J, Chi-Yu and Ruby J all performed their own compositions.

We are grateful to the Piccadilly String Quartet who recorded both quartet parts.
