Children in Year 5 and 6 came together to play Grieg's In the Hall of the Mountain King, supported by members of Newcastle University's orchestra. It was a wonderful afternoon of music making and the sound the children produced was incredible.
The following day, we were invited to the BBC to record a radio interview about music here at Thomas Walling and the opportunities our children get here. It was a great experience and the BBC were VERY impressed with the children of Thomas Walling!
Lord Laidlaw is passionate about children at TWPA having life-changing experiences and opportunities. This is what a former pupil recently said, regarding the Music at TWPA: "Learning instruments, singing, concerts, performances, going places and meeting people showed me that I was able to do more than I thought I could. I now believe that I can be anything that I want to be! I didn't think I would be any good at playing an instrument, or would have the confidence to sing in front of professionals, but I did and I was good! If I can do that with music, I can do it with anything!"
