Harp recitals captivate Cheltenham primary students


During the last week of May over 500 children from schools in Cheltenham were treated to some truly inspiring recitals by harpist Natasha Gale.


The recitals took place at Gardners Lane Primary School, Holy Apostles’ C of E Primary School, St Thomas More Catholic Primary School and Swindon Village Primary School.

All of the children were very excited to see, hear and learn about two different types of harp - the pedal harp and the Celtic lever harp. It was fantastic for the children to hear instruments that many had not heard before as Natasha explained how the harp makes a sound, and then played four fantastic pieces as part of the recital.

We heard traditional pieces and songs such as ‘Moon River’ and the theme from ‘Beauty and the beast’ – a great experience for all, thank you so much Natasha!
