After studying hard all year, our Year 6 Djembe club, Choir and selected drummers and dancers were given the honour of opening the concert at the Royal Festival Hall. The children from our school with Kelvin Grove Primary School, delighted the audience with the complex rhythms, beautiful singing and and impressive dance moves. When the dancers stepped on to the stage the roar from the audience was magnificent!
The children were led by: Remi Uzdras – Rhymic arrangements and musical direction, Jaqueline Uzdras – Dance and Sally McPherson – Choir
The Rathfern upper choir and Djembe dance club are open to children from years 4-6. The advanced Djembe group is open to children in Year 6 who have already completed a years training with Remi. All Rathfern children study Djembe in Year 5 for one year, and Djembe in year 2 for a term.
