Stone Rocks 2020
Stone Rocks 2020
Hi all, Mr Harrison here. I hope you are all well and looking forward to the summer break. As you will all know, we were not able to get our usual Stone Rocks fix on the school field in June of this year. But we have the next best thing- a virtual Stone Rocks. We weren't going to let the virus spoil our fun!
We have been busy preparing videos for a number of performances. So prepare yourself for 45 minutes of thrilling music from our talented children and teachers here at CCA. Look out for a beautiful performance of Lean On Me from the school choir and a jaw-dropping rendition of Jurassic Park from the School Orchestra, complete with special effects! Mr Morgan and his digital drummers will be entertaining us with their version of Twist and Shout and there are a number of solo performances from pupils of all ages.
I would like to thank all the pupils and teachers who have performed and worked so hard to put this together. This includes instrumental teachers from Entrust Music, as well as a few familiar faces here at CCA which I'm sure you will recognise. If we didn't know how to use technology before then we certainly do now!
And finally, an extra special thanks must go to our very own Mr Cannon and Mr Hammond. Mr Cannon for all his hard work with supporting the children and providing his excellent piano accompaniment and Mr Hammond for spending hours at his computer to turn my vision of a virtual festival into reality. No easy task!
On with the show. Drum roll please...
