A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul. ― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

At the recent Junior School Assembly, the Allegro Concert Band performed The Trinity Blues written by its Conductor Mr Mályusz.

Before the performance, Tom from 6La interviewed Mr Mályusz about the importance of making music together. He said, ‘playing together with other musicians allows young people to develop team and leadership skills. These skills include listening and non-verbally communicating with each other. Collaboration is also one of the skills gained which is transferable, and it’s a great way to motivate musicians. And perhaps most importantly, music is a great way to motivate children.’ Mr Mályusz commented afterwards that the boys are really looking forward to being able to perform Mission Impossible and other film favourites.
