Buxton Music and Drama Festival – a wonderful experience and lots of medals too!
Of course its the taking part that counts but nothing could disguise the excitement when the choir won their category! Well done to everyone – it was a long evening of listening but the children behaved impeccably and were a real credit to our village. A special thank you to Mr Tinker who has worked so hard with the choir over the year it was such a proud moment!
We also had a range of other performers – our Ukulele duet seen here played in the huge St Johns Church. Pianists also play here on the full sized grand piano – some of the younger players could not even tough the floor!
Solo singers ands the wind players took part in the Methodist Church. The brass trio ‘The Three Trumpeteers’ had a blast and we also had violinist and a cellist playing solos.
The Festival is over 2 weeks and on another day several children took part in the spoken/drama section reciting poems. Everyone remembered how to stand and bow afterwards – its a quite a daunting experience but such a good learning opportunity and great fun to listen to others perform. Well done to the musical team at Eyam! A big thanks to parents for helping with practising and of course to our Peri teachers.
