The first Southwark Music Hub Percussion Festival took place at the Clore Ballroom in the Southbank Centre, London on Monday 2nd March 2015. This showcase was a celebration of all the work done in our Wider Opportunity, African Drumming & Samba programmes. Thanks to all the primary and secondary schools who took part, it was full of fantastic sights and sounds!
Below we have some photos from this fun filled musical extravaganza! For more on this and other Southwark Music Service events visit our Flickr, YouTube, Soundcloud, Google + and Facebook pages. Don't forget to keep up with all our news on Twitter!
'Thank you very much for the outstanding music provision you are delivering each week. As you know, our children have missed out on any music provision recently so it is wonderful to see & hear it up & running again. I so enjoyed being in today's year 5 music lesson - the excited faces, enthusiasm & engagement throughout clearly demonstrated how much the children love their lessons & look forward to them each week. We are very lucky to have you'
'Children singing across the whole school. Teachers and support staff singing with governors, parents and carers. Rounds and action songs. Sea shanties and beat box. Uninhibited performances. What a brilliant way to involve the whole community in two days of togetherness!'
