RET concert - an Introduction for Primary Schools

Posted on: 14/03/2024

It has been an exciting week for Music in the Ridgeway Education Trust, with 3 primary schools joining together with students from Didcot Girls' School in our first ever RET concert for primary schools on Thursday 14th March.  We hope to inspire many young pupils to learn a musical instrument and take their first steps on their musical journey. 

Pupils in Year 4 enjoyed the experience of witnessing a concert at Didcot Girls School, which included a performance from a full orchestra; this involved over 90 students from RET and soloists on a range of instruments including violin, flute, bassoon, trombone and harp. Student Ambassadors led the event, introducing the performances from soloists and including interesting facts about the instruments and how sound is created. At the end of the concert, pupils had the opportunity to 'meet a musician' to ask questions and see the musical instruments up close.

By welcoming more primaries into the trust this year, and with the addition of a RET Primary Music Lead, we are looking forward to sharing more opportunities for music making. We are thrilled with the response to our first ever RET primary concert and are pleased to say that more is underway to extend musical opportunities further... watch this space!
