Summer Concert 2021

Music

The annual Summer Concert saw our talented musicians entertain family members, staff and fellow pupils, as an audience returned to the Hammond Theatre to watch our music ensembles for the first time this year.

First Year Orchestra opened the evening with their powerful rendition of Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance. Our year group bubble choirs then gave a series of impressive choral performances including I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing and Didn’t my Lord Deliver Daniel. The Second Year Sinfonia brought the first concert to a close with a spirited version of the Can Can. As the audience departed, they were treated to the magnificent sight of the Brass Band marching at the front of School.

The second concert showcased the fantastic musicianship of our senior pupils beginning with two superb performances from the Voices of Lions. Upper Sixth former Tobias Droy led the male voice choir in a moving rendition of Vaughan Williams’ Loch Lomond followed by the more contemporary and upbeat Superstition by Stevie Wonder. The Lower Sixth Percussion ensemble raised the roof of the Hammond Theatre with their impressive music-making while the Piano Trio excelled in their performance of Glinka’s Pathétique in D Minor.

To close this year’s Summer Concert, the Lower Sixth Jazz Band showcased their remarkable musicianship in an uplifting performance of Bags Groove. A fantastic end to a term of musical celebration.
