How to find us

Winter Concert, February 2018

This week’s concert featured more than 150 performers from the Junior department, Lower School and Middle School and was the first formal evening concert for many of our young musicians. There was great excitement and anticipation throughout the rehearsals in the afternoon and at 7pm, the concert was underway. The programme balanced vocal and instrumental performances and was a mixture of large and small ensembles and a real variety of repertoire. The audience was treated to orchestral repertoire by Vivaldi, Schubert and Strauss; Junior Choir, 8ve and the Year 5 and 6 choir performed beautiful folk music and the newly formed Flute Choir introduced us to Miss Livvy’s Edwardian Saga. Film music was definitely a popular choice with many featured items from Frozen, The Wizard of Oz, James Bond, Charlie Brown and Pete’s Dragon, and two of our ensembles were directed by student conductors – Jasmine Spurgeon (Yr 10) and Alice Gore (Yr 11). The evening was a wonderful showcase for our younger musicians and they rose to the challenge magnificently, performing with confidence and musicality. Many thanks to the L6 stage management team and congratulations to everyone involved.
