Chamber Music in Schools August Report

The Chamber Music in Schools piano trio visited three local outer regional schools on Friday 30 August. Deidre Rickards, Joanna Fairs-Wu and Sofia Debus delighted young students from St Joseph’s in Uralla, St Patrick’s in Walcha and Rocky River Primary School with their easy listening program of well known classical pieces.  The concert also involved fun interactive activities with the students and quality question time.

At Rocky River Primary School the specialist primary music teacher, Helen Kirkaldy was able to be present to guide her students through the program notes and no doubt follow up on the visit with listening to the CD supplied and further discussion about the presentation.

We received the following feedback from Mrs Belinda Burton, Principal at St Patrick’s Walcha:

I  would just like to thank you Deidre, Sofia & April for visiting St Patrick’s Walcha on Friday.
Everybody enjoyed your wonderful performance.
Thank you from the children, staff and parents at St Pat’s.
