Dear Parent/Carer

Yr5 & Yr6 Skipton Music Festival Concert – Tuesday 20th February

Following the successful revival of their Annual Schools Concert series in 2023, which welcomed over 150 pupils to Skipton Town Hall, Skipton Music is delighted to announce a further event for 2024. This year their guest artists are recorder quartet Palisander.

Palisander bring to life the rich history of the recorder with an inspiring interactive concert, designed to ignite children’s music-making. With an amazing array of recorders from 6 inches to 6 feet tall, the ensemble presents music spanning 900 years. It includes traditional music from the British Isles, songs by Kings, spooky baroque concertos and surprising contemporary techniques.

The children will be walking to the concert and back. The concert lasts from 2 - 3pm so they will not be back at school until about 3.45pm. Children can either be collected from Skipton Town Hall (outside Starbucks) at 3pm or from school at 3.45pm. Please follow the link to complete the online form by Monday 19th February, noon so we can organise the necessary staffing.

Children will need a warm waterproof coat and sensible footwear. This trip is a local visit and a separate consent is not required under the terms of our Educational Visits Policy. 

If you have any queries about this event please contact me via the school office. 

Yours sincerely

Mr T Whitehead

Interim Executive Headteacher
