13.07.17 - Sensational Performances at Derby Arts Festival Celebration Concert

Sensational performances by two of our talented, musical students at the Derby Arts Festival Celebration Concert left a rapt audience wanting more.

Isabel Blockley (age 11) and Edric Garner (age 9) were both invited to perform in front of friends, families and the Derbyshire community at Derby Cathedral following their incredible performances at the recent Derby Arts Festival.

Isabel melted the hearts of the audience with her beautiful harp rendition of Puccini’s ‘Oh Mia Babbino Caro’, while Edric brought the house down with his highly skilled and athletic piano performance of ‘Black and White Rag’, composed by George Botsford.

Jane Ford, Ockbrook School’s piano and harp teacher, said: “I could not be prouder of my wonderful students! Isabel, Edric and all of my pupils always show unfailing enthusiasm and determination. The musical life of Ockbrook School is an exciting world in which I am thrilled to be involved.”
