Saltus’s musical memorial

First Prev 1 2 3 Next Last

More than 170 students performed in Saltus Grammar School's annual Ruth Henderson Memorial Concert in Victoria Park on May 26th.

Ruth Henderson, who was a long-time organist and choir director of the Anglican Cathedral and former head of music at Saltus, was known for her work in the community. The concert began with several pieces performed by the Bermuda Islands Pipe Band, most of whom are Saltus alumni.

Many of the students performed in two to three different groups including: Lower Primary Handbells; S3/S4, S5/S6 and Secondary Choirs; Primary Wind Ensemble; Junior and Senior Orchestras; Stringendo, Vivace and iBow; plus Wind Band, Concert Band, Big Band and Jazz Band. Ruth Henderson's daughters Gillian and Stephanie, along with some of her grandchildren, were in attendance.

During the concert two awards were presented: The Bermuda Islands Pipe Band's Ruth Henderson Music Award was presented by Pipe Major and Saltus alumnus Aidan Stones to S10 student Myles Packwood who plays trumpet and drum kit; and the Michelle Outerbridge Musical Opportunity Award was presented by Michelle's mother, Lise, to SGY2 student William “Liam” Peniston who plays the violoncello and learnt to play the tuba with help of the award.
