Teachers, parents, friends and families have an “absolutely fantastic” evening as the children of a primary school entertained the crowds with their musical prowess last night.
Eastcourt Independent School in Eastwood Road, Goodmayes, hosted a musical recital to round off the term which saw more than 50 past and present pupils play music from across the centuries to the packed school hall.
The choir kicked off the evening with a performance of three classic Hollywood numbers: Singin’ in the Rain, Moon River and Hello Dolly.
Music also came from a pair of saxophonists, eight pianists, a cellist, two violinists and Year 6 student, Meerah Perinpanathan, played the Veena, a traditional stringed Indian instrument.
Year 3 teacher and choir master, Mike Bell, said: “It was a really good night and everyone was wonderfully impressed with our students.
“We had a bunch of our past pupils return including a group of brothers and sisters who perform together called the Dalley Family.
“They are a string quartet who performed Pharrell’s Happy.”
