It was most encouraging to attend the Childrens Trust concert at St Johns, Smith Square yesterday afternoon. Choirs from a good many primary schools came together to provide a varied programme and an interesting panorama of what is happening musically in the schools that participated. This is presumably not representative of 4-11 year olds around the city generally, except in so far as the hugely variable quality may be typical! I was glad to find that my daughter's school came top equal in my marking - of course I am not in any way biased.......!
Anyway it was a lot of fun and was the warmest day of the year. So a walk along Millbank before the concert was a quiet treat.
