Parents, pupils and staff enjoyed an evening of the school’s musical talent at the Winter Concert in the Barn yesterday evening, followed by mince pies and mulled wine.
The audience was treated to a varied and lively programme with solo instrumental and singing performances, duos and groups as well as both Prep and Senior choirs and our orchestra. The Upper Prep choir gave us a lively rendition of the 19th-Century All Around My Hat, while the Handchime Group opted for a familiar piece from two hundred years earlier, God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen. Deputy Head girl Tami’s soulful rendition of Without a Word brought a tear to the eye of this reviewer, while Sam P’s interpretation of the Clean Bandit song Rockabye got the feet tapping! International pupils Cherry (vocals) and Susie (piano) gave us a hauntingly beautiful song in Chinese and Felicity’s Home on the Range was charmingly performed. The Senior Choir finished the concert with a polished rendition of Empire State of Mind before the mince pies and mulled wine brought a most enjoyable evening to an end.
It was good to see so many pupils showcase their talents in front of their parents and wider school community: very well done to all of them.
