On Tuesday the 16th of May we went with Mrs Budgett to Greshams Prep School for an amazing opportunity to play the violin. Only four lucky people got to go (Alice Roberts, Georgie Hunt, Callie Walden and Zena Yaxley.) We were welcomed with a great and yummy selection of biscuits and a drink. We played Pomp and Circumstance and The Blue Danube. We called ourselves The UpBeat Sinfonia. There was a great variety of instruments such as Trumpets, trombones, French horn, Violins, violas, cellos, clarinets, flutes, oboe and a drum kit.
It was a terrific day being able to play in a big orchestra for the first time. Miss Roberts, the Head of Music at Greshams made us feel very welcome. We had a lovely hot lunch there and were also given a tour of the new music facilities at Greshams School which cost £6 million!
