Lower School Students shine in the limelight at Summer Concert!

Students from across Lower School came together on Monday 19th June to present their own musical showcase. From the LS Band's 'Summer Nights' from Grease conducted by our very own T-Bird, Mr Fisher, to the rock bands performing 'Ruby' and 'Bring Me to Life', the evening was one long celebration fronted by a huge level of confidence from the students.

KS2 Musical Theatre group gave an energetic, choreographed performance of 'Reveloting Children' from Matilda and we got a preview of 'It's a Hard Knock Life' from Annie performed by KS3 students. Vocals blended with instrumental skills ranging from Aaron Heward's jazz piano stylings to Alex Hu's intense, musical performance of Bach's Prelude on the Violin.

The Year 8 students gave a strong lead, as they performed for the last time as members of Lower School and we were treated to a performance of Spice Girls 'Wannabe' towards the end of the evening. Mr Coupe took the opportunity to thank key staff involved but paid tribute to Kiri Kilgannon and Bella New who have done such a fabulous job as Music Captains this year.

The LS Choir brought proceedings to a close with two Abba songs. The last of these featured solos by Mr Fisher and Mr Coupe, and Mrs Paul sat in pride of place on a throne, as she comes to the end of her time teaching in the department and the college. As the children sang 'Thank You For the Music', there were tears and smiles in equal measure and I hope that Mrs Paul realises that much of the development that has led to concerts like this is down to her determination, sunny disposition and great attention to detail. She will be missed but we wish her well as she joins her husband Roger for her next great adventure.

Well done to everyone involved and we look forward to lots of wonderful music-making next year!
