We had a wonderful time at our Christmas Event on 11th December.
The Pre-School and Key Stage One children performed their Nativity, aided by our Elves.
We were then able to make some Christmas biscuits and decorations with our Crafty Musician team.
To finish off the afternoon, we had Carols Around the Tree, led by our Vocal Department, which we shared on Zoom with Les Houmets.
A huge thank you to all involved and everyone who came to listen to the Jersey Academy ‘Strings and Friends’ Winter Concert on the 11th.
We enjoyed hearing the Senior String Orchestra in the first half, opening with Sibelius’s Andante Festivo and culminating with Elgar’s lyrical and
expressive Serenade in E minor for Strings, featuring a beautiful violin solo by Anna Edelenbos.
In the second half the strings were joined by other orchestral instruments, performing favourites including Prokoviev’s Troika, Delius’s Winter Night and a rendition of Leroy Anderson’s famous Sleigh Ride.
We were very impressed with the high level of musicianship from all
performers, and look forward to seeing future performances from Jersey Academy Senior Strings!
Many successes in this year’s Eisteddfod
Absolutely blown away by the outstanding performances given by some of our woodwind students for our Saturday concert. Some of our younger students gave extremely confident debut performances, alongside more experienced instrumentalists. Our junior and senior sax ensembles, junior woodwind and three flute ensembles showed that teamwork is alive and well by delivering some very competent programmes. Well done all!
A glimpse into JASTO rehearsals. The newly formed Jersey Academy of Music Student and Teacher Orchestra is preparing for its first concert on 19th February 2022. We have a hugely diverse programme from classical to film music, which an original composition, a choir, pianists and an army of Bodhran drummers!
