Musical excellence at Spring Ensembles Concert

10 May 2019

On Wednesday 1 May, the school’s Musical Ensembles from Year 3 to Year 13 came together to perform in the annual Spring Ensembles Concert. 

Each ensemble performed one or two items in a huge range of styles. It was fantastic to see around two hundred students from the Prep and Senior School performing in this joint concert, which is the highlight of the Musical Calendar. I would like to thank the following members of staff for coaching or accompanying each of the ensembles featured in the concert:

Mr Southall      Prep Orchestra
Mrs Howell      Years 5 & 6 Choir & Chamber Choir
Mrs Jarvis     Senior Orchestra, String Ensemble, Prep Strings 
Mr Skilbeck      Prep Orchestra, Senior Choir and Chamber Choir
Miss Purkis     Years 3 & 4 Choir and Years 5 & 6 Choir
Miss Larner      Prep Guitar Ensemble & Senior Guitar Ensemble
Mr Meadows      Senior School Swing Band
Mrs Wilson      Recorder and flute Ensemble
Miss Jones    Senior Flute Ensemble 

I would also like to acknowledge the hard work put in by all the Music Department team in providing instrumental, vocal and theory lessons, and of course the students themselves for all their hard work and commitment. I would also like to thank the following students for their ongoing assistance in their capacities as student Head of Music and Prep Music Prefects:

Eryna Kisumba & Esther Simkiss - Senior School Student Heads of Music
Srilakshmi Sen & Sophia Islam-Choudhury - Prep School Music Prefects

Mr Robson
Director of Music
