1006 Christmas Concert - Poem by John Knight
Sparkling eyes - Smiling faces - Shiney hair
Excited parents - mulled wine and mince pies.
St Gabriel's Junior School Christmas Concert
A 'Baptism of Fire' for Hannah Coward
Musician par-excellence - York & Durham.
First year as Head of Music - Lower School.
The lights are lowered - piano - pianissimo
Here come the girls! - all neat and tartan clad
Carrying candles - Teacher with a sand bucket
At St Gabriel's - Health & Safety Rules - OK.
Like a candle flame - Flickers in our darkness
Uncreated Light - shines through infant eyes.
Alles in Ordnung - Hannah taps the rostrum
A hush descends - Let the concert commence
'Oh Come all ye Faithful' - excellent opener
Then Silent Night - played molto fortissimo
Con entusiasmo by the Junior; Orchestra.
Reading from Isaiah - then Calypso Carol
Christmas Eve & Let their be Peace on Earth
Captiveting - Coward - Choreography
In Fum - Fum - Fum and There were Shepherds.
More readings related to the Shepherd theme.
A plethora of elegant solos - duets and ensembles.
Then the congregation - Hark the Herald Angels Sing.
The Three Kings - read beautifully by Polina Parr
Then Starlight - by the Little Angels Choir
Another reading - then the Mini Angels Choir
Energetic rendering of 'Frosty the Snowman'.
Am I in heaven already? - Well not really
It's just Hannah Coward's - Christmas extravaganza!
A Blessing by the local Vicar - Sarah Alexander
Then - what we've all been waiting for all year
The big finale - 'Because it's Christmas'
By the massed choirs of Years 3 - 4 - 5 and six!
It was electric - Music & Movement - Magnifico
St Gabriel's Junior School Christmas Concert.
This is an eyewitness account Hannah Coward is my
Granddaughter aged 23. I am very proud of her!
