DAOS Musicians at the Spring Grove Music Festival.
On Sunday 3rd February 2019, residents of the Spring Grove Residential Home on the Finchley Road were treated to an afternoon of entertainment by DAOS musicians: The Senior Brass Ensemble, Advanced Saxophones, Advanced Flutes, Y8 String Quartet, Y11 and 12 Vocal Trio and the Close Harmony Group, along with performances of 4 original compositions by A-level music students, Theo Gill, Sylvie Hallam, Joe Loveday and Matthew Mayes.
Particular mention should also go to the musicians who worked with the composers to give these World Premiers: Jade Brooks, Mia Dedic, Jonny Rugg, and Wesley Wilson.
The performances were superb; the residents visibly thoroughly enjoyed them, agreeing with the glowing feedback from the judges. Afterwards, we all shared delicious tea and cakes and the Close Harmony Group sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to Ms Makepeace-Lott!
We keep our fingers crossed that some groups may be invited back to the finals in March!
