On Wednesday 23rd March a chamber ensemble from Gallions Primary School were invited to perform in the Lister Community School Spring Concert. The concert took place in the imposing Agora at Lister where there was lots of space for the big audience full of staff, friends and parents. The ensemble from Gallions involved Year 5 string players and was specially put together by our Lead Practitioner in KS2 Music, Petra Ronkko. The group performed the Merry Widow Waltz by Lehár which was well received by the audience. The evening was also an opportunity for the children from Gallions to hear other young musicians from Newham perform including the Lister Jazz Band and Newham Music’s Roma Bridging Sounds Orchestra who proved particularly popular, and in which four Gallions pupils are regular members.
