We had a truly memorable Prep Spring Concert in the Humphreys Theatre on Thursday evening. 90 children took part in a joyful celebration of making music together.
The sheer hard work that had gone into every performance was truly evident as was the enjoyment the children had in showing off their accomplishments. It is impossible to single out a particular highlight of the evening as every item was a musical treat.
The evening started with the whole of Year Six singing and playing their guitars with Xander and Stella on vocals and Charlie on lead guitar. We then had a wonderful performance by the beginner strings who no longer sounded like beginners!
The Junior Choir lit up the auditorium as they sang Count on me by Bruno Mars and Naughty from Matilda. The flute quartet played a beautiful set of Welsh Airs and Alfred later played a stunning solo on the flute, Mountain Dreams. Junior ETS then sang Rutter’s All things bright and beautiful and the String Orchestra performed a rousing rendition of Pirates of the Caribbean.
As the concert drew to a close the Senior Choir delivered a beautiful performance of One small voice followed by Chim chim cheree and the evening ended with a very impressive performance by the Concert Band of Thriller, Mama Mia and Havana.
Huge thanks to Mrs Flanagan and her fantastic Music team of Adam Assen, Chris Brammeld, Alastair Warren, Helena Richards and all the Prep teachers.
