The pause button has been pressed due to the sudden epidemic situation. In order to encourage pupils to practice their instruments at home and make sense of these difficult times, the Music department at WASCZ organized the first “Wycombe Abbey Online Orchestra” for instrumental pupils with the new ensemble piece ‘Six Steps Forward’, created by composition teacher Mr. Knight. In two short weeks, we received 62 recordings from different instrumental pupils. With Mr. Knight’s elaborate edit, we now offer this to all of our pupils, parents, and whole school staff.
‘Yi Bu Zhi Yao ’ is a famous Chinese idiom: it means that we are very close to success. The number ‘six’ stands for good luck, happiness and good health, and reaching our targets successfully. Based on the beautiful wishes of these Chinese words, Mr. Knight named this piece ‘Liu Bu Zhi Yao (Six Steps Forward)’. We hope this piece can bring beautiful wishes to our pupils and staff and convey this idea: Hope will keep blossoming between each step we take. Although we face many difficulties, as long as we take each step firmly, we will reach success!
We are not there yet, but we will be! We also look forward to going back to our lovely campus soon and having the opportunity to perform this piece in each other’s company!
