SOUND POWER - Percussion Quartet with OI Sam Wilson

All of the Prep were treated to a short concert by the Percussion Quartet ‘Sound Power’ featuring OI Sam Wilson and three other final year students studying music at the Guildhall School of Music in London.  Sam began his percussion career in the Prep Orchestra playing the woodblock and is now forging out a career as a professional musician whilst completing his studies.   We were delighted to have Sam back at School.   Sound Power treated us to the sound of djembes and marimbas along with a performance completely on junk instruments and saucepans!  After assembly, Year 5 took part in an interactive workshop involving a piece called ‘Palmas Rojas’  or ‘Red Palms’ which is how our hands ended up after the clapping games and activities.  A wonderful morning with lots to be inspired by.
