Wind Orchestra Rocks the House in Memory Hall

At the end of last term, the full school assembly up St Andrew’s Prep contained a surprise treat for the youngsters. Memory Hall was a full house with everybody in attendance, from the pre-schoolers all the way up to grade sevens, plus staff. After a warm welcome by the new Headmaster, Mr Brendan Brady, the DSG/SAC Wind Orchestra launched into a hot rendition of the Funk classic Jungle Boogie which was first made famous by Kool and the Gang in the 1970s. This was followed by a short introduction to the various instruments found in the orchestra. The second piece was a medley of four tunes from another famous band, namely Queen. Given half a chance, the Grade 7 boys would have joined in with “we will, we will rock you!” but the orchestra moved on to Bohemian Rhapsody before their enthusiasm got the better of them. Suffice it to say, the young audience loved the music their older family members brought them!
