Cannons Creek Independent school recently hosted an evening of music featuring pupils from the high school. For some, this was their first public performance. The evening was incredibly well supported and thoroughly enjoyed by all. It was especially encouraging to see the pupils supporting their peers and making this event their Friday outing of choice!
The musical director for the evening and Head of Arts and Culture in the High School, Annemarie Hedenskog, said “the talent and dedication that our young musicians exhibit is such a joy to experience. I am so proud of this group of young musicians and performers who give up so much of their time to practice and perfect their craft”.
