Twenty-eight of our most accomplished musicians in Year 7 gave excellent performances during the Soloists' Evening in the John Jenkins' Hall on Thursday night. A very wide range of performances, from Mozart on the piano to Bernstein on the French horn and Britten on the violin to Deep Purple on the electric guitar, kept a cheerful and enthusiastic audience entertained throughout! Particular highlights included the two saxophone performances from Arlo and Philip, Shun's captivating Carulli on the acoustic guitar, and the very sensitive playing by so many performers on our newly-restored Bluthner Haessler piano.
The event allowed the students involved to showcase their talents on their principal instruments, but we look forward to seeing them all back on stage – along with every pupil in Year 7 – in the Showcases at the end of March. We would also encourage them all to sign up for House Music!
