Saturday Music Centre
‘ Open Day Performances’
Saturday 14th December 2019

This will be an opportunity to see the authority orchestras, bands, ensembles and choirs, who rehearse weekly at the Music Centre in Williamwood HS performing and hear what they have been working on this term.
Parents/carers, family and friends are all welcome to attend this event and are encouraged to come along and listen to the fantastic variety of music on offer throughout the morning. The pupils and staff have all had a very hard working, but fruitful term and this event is always a very fitting way of celebrating their success. I hope you will take this opportunity to come along and we look forward to seeing you on the day!
Our parental committee, Friends of East Renfrewshire Schools Music, will once again be running a Christmas Raffle and Tombola alongside the Christmas Open Day Performances. This always proves to be extremely popular and is a great way to raise funds to support the music service.  Raffle tickets will be on sale at the fERSM desk on Saturday.
