Recorder Ensemble at South Farnborough Infant School 13th February 2019

The Recorder Ensemble were invited to perform to the children at South Farnborough Infant School to encourage the Year 2 Children to learn to play the recorder.   We took our advanced group of 8 children to play a variety of different music to the children on 5 different recorders, the Sopranino, Descant, Treble, Tenor and Bass.  The children from both schools thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Hampshire Music Service Vocal Festival 2019

Velmead Voices are taking part in a Vocal Festival on 19th March 2019, at Calthorpe Park School.  Over 120 pupils from 6  local Primary Schools will take part in the Festival.  Mrs Alsion Kelly from Hampshire Music Service recently came in to work with our children to teach them some of the songs.  There are some challenging pieces to sing, this means that the children will have to work hard to remember all the words and techniques required for the final concert.

Remembrance Week 2018

As part of Remembrance Week all of the pupils and some of the staff painted rocks to be placed in three display beds in the school grounds.  There were over 600+ rocks painted in total, some special ones were painted with the names of the fallen men of Fleet and Church Crookham.  The final results of this amazing activity can be seen in the photographs below

Fleet Music Marathon 27th October 2018

This was a charity event organised to raise money for the Army Benevolent Fund.  The music played during the event varied across all music tastes from Rock, Pop, Jazz, Classical, Military Bands etc.  Our Recorder Ensemble and Ukulele Band took part for a 20 minute slot, this was a great opportunity for the children to perform in a large hall to an audience that included the Mayor.  A wonderful experience for all and we helped to raise over £4200. Thank you to Fleet Camera Club's Mike Carrington for the photographs below taken at the event.

Ocean Stars Variety Concert - Saturday 6th October 2018

This concert is held at Fleet Methodist Church, by the Ocean Stars Trust, this is a Fleet based Charity who support children in Sri Lanka, the charity began after the 2005 Boxing Day Tsunami.  This is the 11th time that children from Velmead have performed at this event. 

This year we took 10 children who performed in the Ukulele Band and the Recorder Ensemble, playing and singing with confidence to a large audience.  We were very proud of the children who took part, many of whom performed in both groups.  The concert raised an amazing £775, all of which will be spent on the children in Sri Lanka later this month when a group from Calthorpe Park School visit.
