In April our music department organised and hosted the first Midlands Taiko Day for all to enjoy!
The event included a series of workshops for family, friends, pupils and primary school children and was topped with an evening performance by guest drummers James Barrow, Keisuke Moriya, Okuma Daiko, Tamworth Taiko and members of the Wem Taiko Scene. Our very own junior and senior Taiko drummers also performed on the drums kindly purchased for us by our AGS Society and wearing Happi coats loaned to us by the Japanese Embassy especially for the event. Their performance can be viewed on our school YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/GZ5KIc19bqI
