Where's Mr Harrison? - One Day More

Hi everyone. Here is a project that I have been involved in. Many of my musician friends are playing in it, but most of these people I have never met before. Everyone is from Cornwall though. We all recorded our parts separately and then they were put together by a team of 4 people. It took them ages. I think the result is pretty good though. What do you think? This song is from the musical Les Miserables. Can you spot me? (I'm not playing the piano, I'm playing one of my other instruments)

Finally...!

Like we have always said, any questions, please email, no question too small or silly! Remember, as well as sending us completed work and photos, there will be other things you are doing at home that are equally as important and we would love to hear about this too.  Keep safe and well everyone, we are missing you all!  Hopefully we will all be back together at school soon.

 

Best wishes,

Miss Ritchie and Mrs Volz.
