Orchestra rehearsal

I’ve just been in my first orchestra rehearsal for BPSM, with two children from St Martin’s. If I’m being honest, we were all three of us pretty nervous - first time for us all. I reckon there were about 120/130 children at the rehearsal, making a full orchestra, all playing together. Both children who went with me were playing percussion, and the percussion department was… well, I think I’d politely say hectic, frantic but excitable! However, both children were ace, gave everything a go and made me so proud of them. Watching them play snare drums and bass drums (and other drums I don’t even know the name of), as well as maracas and cymbals and tambourines…. Super proud deputy head here. Roll on the performances in June at the Anvil!
