Fifteen of our current Music Scholars joined forces to deliver a thoroughly enjoyable evening concert this week, demonstrating a high level of musical aptitude and accomplishment, and enjoyed by a large audience. Soloists performed on a range of instruments, including piano, voice, marimba, strings and woodwind. Pupils introduced their own pieces and attempted to give their audience a deeper appreciation of the music.
The Director of Music’s own highlights, of which there were many, included John Ireland’s ‘See Fever’ and ‘Ex Ore Innocentium’, sung by Peter H and Charles P respectively; John Z’s moving rendition of John Williams’ poignant violin solo, ‘Remembrances’; and Alex M’s gently expressive performance of Evelyn Glennie’s ‘A Little Prayer’, perfectly rendered on our brand new, 5-Octave Marimba.
