The Magic of Music!
hen asked by Mrs Skilton if I would organise a charity concert in aid of Harrismith School, I really couldnâ€™t say no - quite literally - as she had already announced it to the entire school in assembly! I quickly warmed to the idea, especially when we settled on a Disney theme. Emma Blackett and I then began the daunting task of trying to get people involved and deciding on a running order. With the concert only a couple of months away, I feared that people would be reluctant to commit; instead, the response I received from everyone I asked was incredibly enthusiastic. It was wonderful that so many pupils and teachers agreed to take part. Finally, after a few weeks of rehearsal, the day of the performance arrived. So much planning had gone into it and I was fully expecting it to be an extremely busy and stressful
day. However, thanks to everyone who participated, everything ran very smoothly. The highlight for me was just before the start of the concert, when seating downstairs in the Theatre quickly filled and remaining audience members had to head to the balcony. I was so glad that we had such a large audience to enjoy the show and to see how hard everyone had worked to put the show together. It was a fantastic evening full of song and dance and best of all, we raised ÂŁ1,560 for our partnership school in Harrismith. I would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who contributed by participating, buying tickets or making donations and I am delighted that the money is going to such a worthy cause.
