It was a delight to see the school hall full for this term's Summer Concert, an 80-minute spectacular display of our musical talent, featuring mostly Years 8 and 9 students, with the addition of students from examination years on the rebound!
Mark Heaton's (Teacher of Music) programme featured nearly every musical ensemble currently in training, notably the Samba Band and Vocal Harmony Group, who were both making their first appearances in public. The Ukelele Orchestra, the Recorder Consort, and the Orchestra which played The Blue Danube, Chariots of Fire and Rock Around the Clock) were a delight. Mention also needs to go to the Clarisax group who performed a Disney medley, the House Bands and to round things off the Choir, who sounded terrific. Saskia Caddell offered a violin solo and Emma Marchong played The Entertainer on her descant recorder.
All of this, on top of intense rehearsals for We Will Rock You! We wish to thank all our hard-working musicians and their teachers and coaches for making this such an enjoyable and musically satisfying evening.
