For the first time ever the Gallions Winter Concert took place outside of the school because we were invited to perform in the showroom of the Porsche Centre East London. In total over one hundred children from Years 3-4 and staff were involved. We heard performances from Junior Orchestra, Junior Choir, Senior Orchestra, Senior Choir, Bass Attack, the Four Vs (a violin and viola quartet). Our fantastic guest soloist Cleo is a past pupil of Gallions and is now studying at the Junior Royal Academy of Music.
We were honoured to welcome the wonderful Sheila Hancock as a guest in our audience and she drew the winning ticket in our raffle. The Porsche Centre East London generously offered a raffle prize (a half day Porsche driving experience for two people at Silverstone) with all proceeds going to the Music Trust.
