Musical Concert

We hosted a collaborative musical concert on Saturday 11th June in the Pre-Prep Hall with pupils from the Otakar Kraus Music Trust which is one of the two charities being supported by the school this year nominated by the Head Boy and Head Girl. Our First Orchestra and pupils from The Trust performed set pieces, a number of solos and some combined arrangements to an appreciate audience. The event was well attended by both Newland House parents and supporters and parents of pupils from The Trust. The Trust is based in Twickenham and provides music therapy and music projects for children, young people and adults with physical, learning, neurological or psychological difficulties, in the Boroughs of Richmond, Hounslow and surrounding areas. Founder of The Trust Dr Margaret Lobo hosted an assembly in January and explained how music therapy can enable those who find it hard to communicate through traditional methods to express themselves and interact with others.
