Please enjoy watching this wonderful version of Let it Be, arranged by the inspiring young saxophonist Jess Gillam.
All AGGS music classes were invited to join this project by uploading a video of either playing an instrument or singing. The arrangement is a lovely one.
It was serendipity as we sing Let it Be regularly in our AGGS assemblies and often it’s this song that is chosen by Y11 and Y13 in their leavers’ assembly.
A big thank you to our wonderful team of 14 instrumental teachers, who are teaching students remotely and who encouraged their pupils to record a part.
Look out for the following students, who have let me know they were involved. Some specified the time they can be seen. They will all be awarded a merit:
7-3 Kalila R double bass
7-3 Maia S H singing – 3.37
8-2 Abi H singing
8-2 Regina E violin
8-4 Zoe H trombone
8-5 Thakshila R trombone – 1.48

Grace has been an exemplary student and musician in starting a brass ensemble completely from scratch at AGGS. In the 3 months since she began this project, she organises weekly rehearsals, keeps a register, sources music and often arranges it herself. Students who now attend this new club seem to thrive under Grace’s leadership – rehearsals are orderly, with a lovely learning atmosphere which is down to Grace. The brass ensemble performed for the first time in our Spring concert highly successfully. Since school closure, Grace has continued to rehearse weekly using the Zoom platform, which is extremely impressive, given this was done completely under her own initiative.
