Beethoven Workshop

10.01.2016 / All our German and GAL students enjoyed a Beethoven Workshop, lead by Mrs Asal Alimirzai and Mr Benjamin Findlay. They learned the words to the Ode an die Freude (Symphony No 9) as well as the notes, and managed to sing and play the piece very well.

We had Yasmine on saxophone, Salma on violin, Jude on Trombone, Justin and Esther on the piano and the other students on different instruments.

Thanks and congratulations to the participants and facilitators of this wonderful workshop!
