Yesterday we held our annual Kinder musizieren competition and were treated to an array of fantastic musical performances by our Primary School pupils. The children performed two songs each on their instrument – or singing – in an informal environment in front of an audience of parents and friends.
The competition is open to any child from the Primary School who is learning an instrument, including voice, and has been taking regular lessons for the past year.
The performances this year included piano, guitar, ukulele, recorder, flute, cornet, violin and singing. Well done to all young performers, some of which had never performed in front of an audience before.
Kinder musizieren is a successful offspring of Jugend musiziert, a renowned music competition in Germany which is also open to German Schools Abroad such as St. Kilian’s. More information about Kinder musizieren and Jugend musiziert is available here.
Thank you to our panel of judges consisting of William Mansfield, Adeleh Davis and Barbara Lange-Davitt, our former teacher and colleague who had run this event for many years during her time at St. Kilian’s.
Another thank you goes to Anne Thielemans, music teacher in Primary School and dedicated organiser of this competition.
