2017 Newcomers' Concert
Invicta's Hall made a welcoming setting for the 70 or so Year 7 students who bravely signed up for our first informal performance of the new season, the popular Newcomers' Concert.
The 80-minute programme went without a hitch, with many fine performances given by the Year 7 choir, singers and instrumentalists. Notable among the latter were Sophie Tanner (Bassoon), Lavinia Mendis (Clarinet, Voice and Guitar), Sharna Ambanpola ('Cello), Smaranda Roman (Violin), Rachel Robertson (Guitar and Voice), Surraya Laity (Flute), and pianists Elyse Kerr, Inara Shivji, Helen Ranger, Isobel Amy, Joanne Aitalegbe, Tijesunimi Femi-Adeniyi and Lucy Hayden. The vocal performances were expertly accompanied by the Music Department band formed of Mr Raggatt, Mr Masters, Mr Heaton and Miss Fletcher.
Thanks, as ever, to Mr Chambers for his subtle lighting and soundscape support and to all those who participated or attended this wonderful evening of music.
Thank you to Mr Heaton and Miss Fletcher for their hard work in making this such a successful event.
