Incredible response to Prep Spring Concert
May 9, 2022

Rydal Penrhos received a number of heart-warming messages from those who attended the school’s recent Prep Spring Concert, which was a rousing success.

Seeing our young pupils back on stage in front of a live audience was simply incredible during the Rydal Penrhos Prep Spring Concert. This was one of the first major events at the school since Welsh Government officials relaxed COVID-19 restrictions and saw more than 200 people fill the Memorial Hall to mark the occasion.

The concert was a tremendous success thanks to some sterling commitment from pupils and staff during the rehearsal process. Our aim is to have every pupil learning an instrument of their choice and we have a full group of talented peripatetic teachers who all have spaces to take on pupils from Year 1 onwards in any instrument.

Everyone’s hard work paid off with a remarkably entertaining evening with many polished group and individual performances, with a little bit of humour thrown in thanks to a sketch featuring Mrs Lucy Davies, Deputy Principal and Head of Prep, together with some willing pupils.

The concert received a standing ovation at its conclusion and many parents took the time to write in and offer their personal congratulations – which were gratefully received and shown below.

If you would like your child to have lessons in a 1:1 situation, please contact music@rydalpenrhos.com and we will put you in touch with the relevant peripatetic teacher.

“Wow! The spring concert was absolutely wonderful. Thank you so much to you, the staff and all the children for all of the hard work and dedication. It’s what we all needed after missing nearly two years of concerts and plays.”

“Many thanks for the wonderful concert, it was great to be back together again and to see how confident all the children were on stage. They all performed brilliantly!! They are a credit to you and all your staff, although as you said all the talent comes from the parents!!”

“I just wanted to write and say how much we enjoyed tonight’s concert; such hard work and talent on show and some very heartwarming pieces which made us all smile. Thanks SO much to all the staff and students.”

“Just a quick note to say a big congratulations to all involved with the Spring Concert – it was a real pleasure!  Very ambitious with such a variety of instruments as well. Utterly adorable and really well put together. I can only imagine the effort involved especially from the music staff.  It was a really uplifting event and I haven’t smiled/laughed/cried happy tears so much in a long time!”
