Christmas Concerts

It was lovely to see so many of you joining us at Gunnersbury Baptist Church for this year’s concerts. They opened this year with the powerful piece Djole - packed with complex djembe rhythms and beautiful vocals. We do hope you enjoyed the fantastic singing, which included some very intricate part-singing from all year groups. There was also one of Mr Bonner’s trademark mash ups with Peace on Earth and Little Drummer Boy. The whole school songs raised the roof with a full range of musical techniques on display, from the haunting dynamics of A Million Dreams to the complex part singing (in French!) of Vois Sur Ton Chemin. However, the children were, as ever, the stars of the show; singing beautifully and delivering their lines with confidence and clarity. Special mention, and a huge thank you, to Geoff Bonner, who worked to prepare the drummers and played on the day, Gill Coulton who liaised with the Gunnersbury team to make sure everything ran smoothly, and to Charlie F who designed the cover for the programme. What a talented bunch of staff and children we have here at Strand Juniors! All the money raised will go to Crisis at Christmas. Thank you to everyone who made a contribution.
