Music Matters

Munch with the Musos a mammoth musical feast!

The CM Wood Centre was filled to capacity on the morning of Sunday 27 November as the Friends of Music, after a two-year hiatus, remounted one of our favourites on the Tintern musical calendar, ‘Munch with the Musos’! This is the 13th time that the committee has mounted this wonderful event which brings together our Junior School and Secondary School performers, with a Christmas theme being the order of the day. Somewhere in the vicinity of 360 people, including students and their family members and staff enjoyed the musical items performed by choirs, orchestras and bands.

As well as festive music, the event provided time for socialising, munching on tasty morsels, reflecting on the past year, and a friendly atmosphere that wouldn’t be possible without the incredible organisational efforts of our Friends of Music committee. Thank you to the hard-working parents, who set up the hall on Friday afternoon and then arrived at 7.30am on Sunday to make sandwiches, cut fruit and get the sprinkles onto the fairy bread! Their efforts are greatly appreciated by the Music Department and the wider school community. Please email if you would like to join this merry band of parents of musical children in 2023!
