A Summer Term of Music Making
We had a busy time in the Summer term 2017.
The Choir and Haze Samba performed at the school Summer Fete in June. We also had the Year 2 Production – ‘Hazelwood’s Island Adventure’ – in June, featuring our Year 2 violinists playing in the overture.
At the beginning of July the String Group, Wind Band and Haze Samba performed at St John’s Church Fete. They all played brilliantly and it was a lovely occasion. Well done!
We took the Choir to sing at the Partnership Schools’ Music Festival at Highfield School where they joined with children from Highfield and Wilbury. It was a fun morning and our children sang and behaved beautifully!
The highlight at the end of term was the Year 6 production of ‘A Tale As Old As Time’. The whole year group took part and the show was a huge success.
Here are some photos….
Young Voices Concert – 02 Arena
We took the children from the Choir – years 4-6 – to sing at the Young Voices concert at the 02 Arena on Tuesday 7 February. They had been working really hard on all the songs and performed confidently throughout the rehearsal and evening concert. We were, as always, so proud of their behaviour and enthusiasm. Well done – and many thanks to all the adults who helped with the trip.
Christmas Music Concert- Tuesday 13th December 2016
A huge congratulations to Ms Halpern and all of the musicians and singers for an amazing musical extravaganza. We had over 120 children perform in the Christmas concert this week. The school was filled with the beautiful sound of the Hazelwood Choir, Haze Samba, the String and Wind groups and of course our very brave and super talented soloists and of course the very talented Y6 Girl Group. The orchestra and choir had the audience spell bound for an hour and a half. It showcased the wonderful talent and provision we have at Hazelwood and the importance of music and singing within our school. Congratulations to all involved. Check out some of the photos and videos of the performance below.

The children in the Choir (Y4, 5 and 6) took part in a very special event at the Royal Albert Hall. They all had a great time rehearsing and performing in the fundraising concert for Barnardo’s. 68 children from the Choir took part. They sang well and as always, made us very proud. Well done to all the children, but a very special well done to Sky Anderson-Daye from 5R who performed a solo verse. Thank you to all the adults who helped.
