Top Musical Performances
The Woodwind and Brass heats of the Coulsdon & Purley Music Festival were held at Caterham School and we were delighted to present a number of soloist and ensembles from both Caterham Prep and Senior School. Congratulations go to all who took part and well done in particular to those who won their category: Piano Trio (Francesca C, Alice H and Violet W) for the Coulsdon & Purley Cup for ensemble playing and Thomas B for the Advanced Concerto class. These senior pupils will be performing along with the Prep winners below in the Festival Concert and Award Ceremony on Saturday 22 April in the Humphreys Theatre. Pupils from Caterham School also took part in the Vocal and Strings part of the festival held at other locations in the area. The Coulsdon and Purley Music Festival is in its 79th year and is a long-standing local event that engages expert adjudicators and accompanists. It was wonderful for our pupils to receive such high praise for their performing.
Prep had tremendous success with Alfred not only winning his Woodwind class but also being awarded with the Landsell Cup for Solo Woodwind, a huge achievement.
Ella W (flute) also came first in her class of Solo Woodwind Grades 1 – 2, gaining ‘Outstanding’.
Ella D (flute) gained ‘Distinction’ and second place in the Grades 3 – 4 Woodwind class and Sophia gained ‘Honours’ for her Oboe playing in the same class.
Natasha (trombone) gained second place and a ‘Distinction’ in the Solo Brass Grades 1 – 2 class.
Alejandro meanwhile headed over to Trinity School where he performed on the piano in the ages 10 – 11 class and gained ‘Honours’.
In other competitions, Eugenia performed in the Richmond Music Festival in the Youth Beginner class where she gained a ‘Distinction’ and a Gold medal for being awarded first place.
Congratulations to all these children who not only performed brilliantly but were also fine ambassadors for their school.Back to all news
