Forthcoming Music Events

Forthcoming Hall School Community Partnership Concert, SJSS 2nd March 2017, 7.30pm

An exciting joint initiative between The Hall and Deptford Park Primary School, under the direction of one of our music teachers Christina McMasters, is due to take place on March 2nd at St John’s Smith Square.

Christina is the Young Artist in Residence at SJSS this year.  She has invited a choir from Deptford Primary to join with some instrumentalist pupils from The Hall and The Ligeti Quartet, to perform in a concert on March 2nd, called Britten to America.  Rehearsals have been in full swing for several weeks now.

The children will be involved in arrangements of American folk tunes by Ruth Crawford Seeger and the performance of a new work by award nominated singer /songwriter/cellist Ayanna Witter-Johnson. This is an amazing opportunity for the children not only to feel inspired from working closely with award-winning musicians, but also to perform in one of the capital’s most renowned music venues.

Tickets are available from the SJSS box office; the CAVATINA Chamber Music Trust is offering free tickets for young people under 26 years to the concert.  All are welcome!
