On the 23rd of June 2014 Destiny Garden School took part in the annual Likoni sub-county music festival which is a precursor to the National music festival. The school has been preparing for a long time for this event thanks to a grant from Martin Donaldson Music Trust (MDMT) which allowed us to employ a specialist part-time music teacher. We took part in 13 disciplines of which 7 were judged good enough to proceed to the next heats. These items were; African traditional dance, Public Speaking (Kevin Omondi and Kevin Otieno – both class 8), Lower primary choral verse (2 groups) and Poems (Faith Wekesa and Charity Nyangai).
MDMT’s series of annual concerts featuring young musicians in Macclesfield continues on Saturday 5th July at 7.30pm in MacclesfieldMethodistChurch. Topping the bill are two local groups – St Alban’s Junior School Choir led by Diane McIntyre and the Chamber String ensemble of Macclesfield Music Centre directed by Nicola Bright.
An inspiring and lovely evening of music making by our young people is guaranteed! Come along and support these young musicians and MDMT at the same time. Tickets are £7 for adults and £2 for accompanied children available on 0162543318 7/ 615298 or on the door at the time of the performance.
