A huge number of children (approximately 85%) receive at least one instrumental or vocal music lesson per week, which is a phenomenal number. With such an extraordinary take up of individual music lessons, it is unsurprising perhaps that Brambletye hosts a huge number of extra-curricular ensembles, which the children are actively encouraged to participate in. The ensembles currently include three choirs, two orchestras, a very large concert band and a brass ensemble, which boasts 25 players ranging from Year 3 to Year 8!
Concerts are huge affairs and regularly feature the whole school in their finales: recent performances have included ‘Hallelujah’, ‘Angels’ and ‘Rule the World’. It’s so crucial that all children have the ability to perform in our wonderful theatre and our concerts are testimony to that.
The Department is a huge part of the school, where fun and creativity are the name of the game but please don’t just take my word for it! Come and visit us!
