Portobello Area Strings Concert Review

A huge well done to all our cellists and violinists from P5-7 who took part in the Portobello area strings concert at Portobello HS on Tuesday 29th November. It was a great evening for families to celebrate the fantastic work Mr and Mrs Horvath continue to do in St John’s and surrounding local schools.

The children were undaunted by performing to a packed audience in the first Christmas concert for three years. All year groups played their own pieces before joining together to play Jingle Bells with the traditional jangling of keys from the audience.

Ably assisted by former St John’s pupils now at Portobello HS, the children’s hard work and rehearsals paid off with an excellent all round performance. We mustn’t forget Daniel and Zac who were unable to play last night but who have both prepared fully as part of the St John’s strings group.

We are very proud of all our students for their hard work and practice leading up to last night!
