Juniors Informal Concert

Senior School
24 Jan 20

On Thursday evening, the Music department held an informal concert for the juniors. These concerts are there to allow pupils to gain experience in playing in front of a small audience (especially useful before Examinations) and also playing works which may be “work in progress”. This allows pupils to assess what areas may require more practice.

Unfortunately the programme was reduced due to illness (lots of flu bugs going around) but a small appreciative audience enjoyed the young performers:

Otis Meneses-Bautista  (First Form) – Voice

            Bart’s Where is Love from Oliver

Grace Manning-Greene (First Form) – Violin

            Piazzolla’s Chiquilin de Bachin

Emily Slipper (Second Form) – Piano

           Sibelius’ Joueur de Harpe

Avery Fletcher (Second Form) – Violin

            Handel’s Sonata in F Major 1st movement

Evie Smith (First Form) – Voice

            Trad arr. Althouse’s Shenandoah

Sophie Browning (Third Form) – Violin

            Bach’s Giga from E Major Partita

Jack Price (Lower Sixth) – Violin

            Lalo’s Symphony Espagnole 1st Movement

As you may have noticed, the last performer is Jack Price, a Lower Sixth Form player. Although he is definitely not a junior, he was performing for two reasons: one, to give the younger players something to aspire to, and two, to give him more experience playing in front of an audience, ready for his auditions to Music colleges next year.

Thanks go to all parents and staff who attended, the performers and Mrs Holmes.
