The Monday Afternoon Recital Series continued this week with performances from First Year pupils Louis Beer, Olivia Dow and Talia Zelhof, Fourth Year pupil Thomas Cope, and Sixth Formers Jess Lloyd and Joanna Brown. The appreciative audience enjoyed the concert and the wide range of styles and instruments on display. The next concert will be on Monday 21st November and will feature students from the Third Year, including whole class performances of Reggae songs. Pupils wishing to perform in future concerts should see Mr Kennedy in the Music department.
On Wednesday 9th November all of the Fifth Year GCSE Music students took part in the annual recital. This was an excellent opportunity for pupils to show off their instrumental skill and complete part of their course. There were some fantastic, committed and musical performances from all pupils and it was pleasing to see the pupils supporting each other so enthusiastically.
