RET Concert - An Introduction for Primary Schools

13th March 2024

It has been an exciting week for Music in Ridgeway Education Trust (RET) with children from All Saints, Long Wittenham and Hagbourne Primary Schools and students from Didcot Girls' School joining together in our first ever RET concert for primary schools.  We hope to inspire many young pupils in learning a musical instrument within the trust and taking their first steps on their musical journey. 

Pupils in Year 4 have enjoyed the experience of a concert at Didcot Girls' School this week including a performance from a full orchestra; this included over 90 students from RET and soloists on a range of instruments including violin, flute, bassoon, trombone and harp . Student Ambassadors led the event, introducing the performances from soloists and including interesting facts about the instruments and how sound is created. At the end of the concert, pupils had the opportunity to 'meet a musician' to ask questions and see the musical instruments up close.

By welcoming more primaries into the trust this year, and with the addition of a RET Primary Music Lead, we are looking forward to sharing more opportunities for music making. We are thrilled with the response to our first ever RET primary concert and are pleased to say that more is underway to extend musical opportunities this space!
