SHOWCASE OF SONG
Posted on: | Category:

This year's senior vocal evening, featuring ten of Wilson's most talented singers, was a truly wonderful event. With a broad repertoire, ranging from Torelli to Elgar, Handel to Browne, it had a highly diverse and brilliantly executed programme.

We were all thrilled by the joint performance of four pieces from Vaughan Williams' Songs of Travel, sung beautifully by Aaron (Year 12), Kiran (Year 13) and Siobann (Year 12). This had been preceded by Daniel's (Year 12) tender and soulful renditions of two French songs, Le Colibri (Chausson) and Après un rêve (Fauré), which brought tears to all our eyes. Ryan's (Year 13) incredible performance of the aria Il Mio Tesoro by Mozart was matched in his next song, Elgar's Fain Would I Change This Note, in which Ryan stunned us all with his precision and virtuosity as a tenor.

I am sure we would all agree that singing together in a setting like this was long overdue; the nostalgia of Aaron's A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square and our own stirring performances in the Barbershop choir captured this sentiment and brought the evening to a glowing close. We would also all like to thank Mr Lissimore for his excellent accompaniment on all of the songs, and of course Mr Hann's vital contribution and kindness in keeping events like this possible for us.
