Year 6 and Year 4 Perform at the Barbican!

On Monday the 11th July it was a very special evening. To celebrate 10 years of the Tower Hamlet Music Service, a wonderful concert was held at the Barbican Theatre that brought together hundreds of children from across the borough in a diverse celebration of music-making.

Osmani Primary school was proud to be represented in the concert by 2 group of children, from years 4 and 6, who played the violin and the cello. For these children, the concert was the culmination of a year of dedicated rehearsals and music lessons both in school and at venues across Tower Hamlets.

On the night there were a lot of butterflies in tummies and nervous instrument tuning back stage, however once the children were on stage they performed magnificently and did themselves, their strings tutors, their parents and the school proud.

Each group from Year 4 and Year 6 played a variety of pieces from classical to modern music alongside an orchestra of children of a similar age.

Awe-struck from playing on a world-renowned stage in front of a packed audience, one child said, “That was amazing!”

It was wonderful to see the children from Osmani participating in such a unique and exciting performance.
