Music Matters

Musical treat on the horizon – Wednesday 7 March

If you would like to hear 15 of our most talented musicians performing in a feast of beautiful music, make a note in your diary of this date: Wednesday 7 March 7.00pm. Every second year we present a ‘Preliminary Concerto Concert’. Students select one movement from a concerto to perform with piano accompaniment. An external adjudicator then selects the best four, in their opinion, to continue on to perform at a showcase event in June, at which the four works are performed with orchestral accompaniment. This is always a wonderful musical event, featuring some outstanding musical moments. Download the flyer to learn more.

Ensembles settling into rehearsal routines

Our Year 7-12 Ensembles have started rehearsals for 2018, but most are still welcoming new members. If you are new to Tintern and interested in joining a choir or instrumental ensemble, please check out the table below and feel free to come along to try out a group before making a full commitment to it. Even if you are not a new student, you’re still welcome to jump on board! You will be made to feel welcome and you will meet many like-minded musicians who enjoy getting together to rehearse and perform music on a regular basis.

If you are unsure as to which group you should join, please come up and introduce yourself to Mrs Feenane in the Music Office and she will be able to help you, or she will guide you to a music teacher who will be able to advise you.
