Soloist Recital a Success

18 oktober 2016

Sunday morning can be a sleepy affair in some households, however last weekend the sun came out and around 70 students came to school to participate in our termly Soloist Recitals.

As always, the audience were blown away by the talents of our musicians, ranging from Reception right up to Year 13. It was a pleasure to hear some of our elder students perform this time, with several of them recording their performances as part of their GCSE or IB coursework. We even had our first performance on the timpani which was extremely exciting.

Collaboration was again very clear, as we had not only students performing by themselves, some with Mr Reeve and Mr Doherty accompanying, but also some with parents accompanying and perhaps most impressively Matthew Yick accompanied Zoe Jin in a Year 5 duet performance that wowed the audience. We also had some singing duets lower down the school, with Karen and Ayden Doo singing beautifully as siblings together.

These recitals do not happen overnight and it is always worth mentioning that all the students spend a lot of time preparing and practising every day. It is not easy learning an instrument; it takes dedication, determination and perseverance. There are plenty of times in life when we face challenging tasks and playing an instrument can be one of those occasions. However, I know that the students’ hard work paid off as they all performed exceptionally well and the smiles on their faces demonstrated how proud they were of themselves and others. Congratulations to all who took part!
