The sky was the limit when 11 of our finest brass players took their music to the top floor of Manchester’s newest skyscraper - No1 Spinningfields. The children provided entertainment at the official ‘Topping Out’ ceremony, to celebrate the completion of the outer shell of the building.
The performance culminated with a new song, ‘Spinningfields Skyscraper’,  which had been written in collaboration with other local schools and musicians from Manchester Camerata.

Reception Dinosaur TopicSmile-asaurus

It was a fascinating day out.

The school band gave a great performance in Birmingham Symphony Hall in the National Festival of Music For Youth. They were one of only two primary school brass bands in the country to be invited to take part in this prestigious event, and they made us all very proud.
