Music is an important part of life at Hanford. Our Director of Music is supported by peripatetic instrumental teachers.
Nearly every child plays one musical instrument and many play two. There is a choir for each year group, which any child may join. There is a Chapel Choir, to which entry is by audition. There are also flute groups, a wind band, a string group and an orchestra.
Children regularly perform for each other in informal concerts throughout the year. They may sing with their choir or play their instrument in Chapel on Sundays. The Wind Band is sometimes invited to play for garden parties and village fêtes.
Two or three times a year there are concerts at the school to which parents may be invited. Every child sings in the school’s Carol Service.
