Thursday 12th July
In the penultimate week of term, the music department held their annual summer concert. The evening’s entertainment included wonderfully diverse styles of music in the form of the three choirs, the orchestra, Irish music group, Samba band, R’n’B Band and members of the staff choir. The concert began with an uplifting performance of Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida”. The chamber choir followed with a subtle performance of “Somewhere Only We Know” and “Count on Me”, then the Irish Music Group had the audience tapping their feet again with a rendition of “Maggie in the Wood Polka”. The harmonious Gospel choir then performed “Jar of Hearts “and “When I Was Your Man” before the Concert Choir’s beautiful rendition of “All of Me2 and “Half the World Away”. The orchestra then performed “Can you feel the love tonight” before the Samba Group had the school hall bouncing again. The musical celebrations were continued by the R’n’B Band performing “Answerphone”, “Spotlight” and “2002”. To end the evening the school orchestra and choirs, joined by members of staff performed “Lean On Me” to rapturous applause. Congratulations to all of our incredibly talented students for making the evening such a success.
