Whether playing a Romantic Concerto or simply performing a nursery rhyme to their friends, every child wants to do well.
At Ashford, there are plentiful opportunities to do just that. Supported by a fine team of instrumental staff, there are about 20 performance opportunities every term at Ashford. They range from the relaxed informality of our Tea Time Tootles to virtuoso concerto performances in Brake Hall, our annual AshBash rock concert and the excitement of concerts abroad on our music tours.
There is no shortage of adventure either. In October 2013 we officially became an All-Steinway School, having taken delivery of 11 Steinway pianos; the Ashford School Community Choir was the core choir in a group of 300 singers that gave the first ever complete performance of David Fanshawe's African Sanctus in Canterbury Cathedral; and our students were part of the choir and orchestra for the world premiere of Howard Goodall's King James Bible oratorio in Westminster Abbey.
And that's just a taste of all that is happening in our Music Department. Come and see us to find out more.
