Well done to the members of our P5 class who performed at the opening of the annual St Martin’s Art Exhibition 2017.
The opening took place on August 29th at St Martin’s Community Resource Centre.
In a very short timescale the children reheased and performed three songs with the support of Mrs Ewen and Mrs Stein. Our pupils were joined by children from Tynecastle High School music department who performed a number of vocal and instumental pieces.
We were proud to spot several ex pupils of Dalry in the performers. It was a fantastic afternoon for pupils, staff, our church partner and community members.
“Since its formation in 2008, Red Note Ensemble has taken up a leadership position as Scotland’s contemporary music ensemble, performing and developing both an extensive, highly-varied and critically-acclaimed programme of new music.”
The quartet performed for P6 and P5 in their classrooms, bringing the pupils into contact with pieces by Janáček and Shostakovitch, amongst others.
Many members of P6 and P5 were visibly enthused by the experience, referring to it afterwards as “extreme” and “exciting”.
Thank you very much to the Red Note members for their kind visit.
