Friday 5th July - Summer Fair 

Well done to all the musicians of Carterknowle Junior Band who played wonderfully at the Summer Fair. The band performed a range of pieces learnt this term to a full field of people. It can be quite tricky playing outside, but the band absolutely rose to the occasion, pegging up their music, putting on the sun cream and playing out every note confidently! Superb work team Carterknowle!

Ridgeway Music Gala Christmas Concert

Saturday 15th December 7pm - Merlin Theatre

Congratulations to our massed band, choir and soloists who all performed at the Merlin Theatre on Saturday 15th December, the concert was fantastic! Musicians from twelve different schools joined together to perform a programme of festive treats. The performers attended a series of three after school rehearsals and spent the afternoon of the concert day working intensively at the theatre. We are so proud of what everyone achieved in such a short space of time, the hard work certainly paid off. The highlight of the evening for many was the finale 'Queen Medley' specially arranged for the event by Mr Corker in which all the young musicians performed on stage together, the sound was incredible!
