On Tuesday 18th June we were treated by the boys from all years to a fabulous evening of music making. All the ensembles from school performed along with a number of form 8 leavers. Yet again we were impressed by the standard, moved to laughter by some of the performances so enjoyable as they were. Equally there were some tears shed by parents as we listened for the last time to some of the boys perform.
We enjoyed a huge range of music form classical to modern and of course included something form the 70's for Mr Rose (Bohemian Rhapsody sung by the Chamber Choir). The Aldro Jazz band warmed up for their 'international tour' by getting us all foot tapping with 'At the Hop', Chapel Choir gave a beautiful rendition of Faure's 'Paradisum' and the Brass group kicked it all of with'James Bond'. With Woodwind group, Oboe trio, String group and the guitars all performing wonderfully we were treated to some exceptional performances and hugely encouraged for the years ahead.
We wish our form 8's all the best for the future and will look forward to seeing and hearing how they develop in the coming years.
It was also an opportunity to say goodbye to Mrs Scott who leaves us after 5 years-she has been instrumental to our department with the Cello's, Double Basses, String groups and teaching theory. The boys ,and staff, have gained so much from having her here and we will be much the poorer for her leaving.
