A musical ‘Space Odyssey’ experience!

14 Oct 2015

Witham had a ‘star gazing, sparkling’ day at Oakham, celebrating a ‘Space’ themed musical enterprise!  Witham’s woodwind and brass performers experienced the delights of a new work, One Way Ticket to Mars, by composer John Madden.  The Witham singers were busy rehearsing two songs from Seven Planets and a Cosmic Rock, as well as Bart Howard’s much-loved Fly me to the moon, and a new song by Oakham’s Director of Music, Peter Davis – Escape at Bedtime.  A wonderful day,  celebrating Witham’s musical talents across the board.  Thank you to Ms Forbes and Miss Playford for preparing the pupils so well and thank you to all our families who came to watch the performance. 

Special thanks must go to George Bagshaw (OW) who looked after Witham so well – great to see an ‘old’ boy hosting his former Prep School so well, with care, passion and belonging!  Thank you George!

Thank you to Oakham School for hosting such a super event.   Well done to all!
