Kingham's Christmas Concert

Last Monday saw this year's Christmas concert with various school bands performing a number of familiar pieces. Mr Chambers and his team had worked tirelessly and it was wonderful to see what good shape the music at Kingham Hill is in. There were a number of real highlights, one of which was a piece played predominantly by pupils who had only been learning their instruments for one year. What an inspiration they were to those pupils who were starting out on the same road this year.
