Cellist in School

We were thrilled to welcome the cellist Nigel Blomiley into school on Wednesday afternoon along with Mrs Redington.

Nigel, who was the former principal cellist for the BBC symphony orchestra, talked to the whole school about the cello and then played Apres un Reve by French composer Gabriel Faure (also played at the royal wedding by cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason) and The Swan from Carnival of the Animals by another French composer, Camille Saint-Saens.

Thanks to Mrs Redington for organising this amazing event, and accompanying Nigel on the piano.
