Villagers, visitors and parents alike were treated to a lovely afternoon of music making by the talented students at Richmond School. Within the beautiful setting of Monkend Hall, Richmond School Wind Band, Concert Band, Jazz Band, and Rock Band Millefluer, entertained with a wide selection of music from the classical sounds of the Spiritual setting, 'When the Stars Began to Fall' to the modern sounds of Uptown Funk!
Richmond School started with the Wind Band, a KS3 band made up of students developing their talent. The band played a selection of TV and Film favourites including Mission Impossible, Star Ward and Music from Grease. The Concert Band (for more advanced students) took to the stage performing amongst others, highlights from West Side Story, Lord of the Dance and the current Euro 2016 'Carnival de Paris'. The Jazz Band then stepped up with their take on the Count Basie standard 'One O'clock Jump', the timeless Chattanooga Choo Choo, concluding with firm favourite 'Moves Like Jagger' by Maroon 5.
To round off a super days music, Evie Wright, Olly Carr, Adam Heseltine, Zak Hornby and Rob Tweddle performed as the electrifying Millefluer, with a distinctive mix of covers and original songs. The revellers were highly entertained all day and Richmond School has been asked to consider another visit to next years Fare!
