NAE Virtual Choir

The High School Boys Choir have been working on this project for some time and we are nearing the end of the road.

In September, we received our secret parts for the specially composed piece “Wondrous Garden”. This piece was commissioned from the composer Jack Blume for the NAE Virtual Choir and has never before been performed. The finished project will feature all 43 NAE schools around the world, all singing their own parts and each part has been kept secret from the other schools so no one knows how the finished song will sound!

This mystery has added an element of suspense to our work! St. Andrews boys are at the stage where they have submitted their video, recorded by Mr. Julian Hadden last term. We have also submitted 2 of our vocal recordings and have another 2 to record and send off this week.

We can’t wait to hear how the finished song sounds and will share this with you when it is all completed.

Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme: Core Work of the Month

This month we would like to share with you a piece of music that we use to explore and experience improvisatory music. Blue Monk  was originally recorded in 1952 and is composed by Thelonious Monk, a renowned jazz composer and pianist.  Improvisation is integral to jazz. In addition to his piano skills and style, Monk is known to have been able to improvise a logical musical idea with structure and organization comparable to a written composition. While improvising, Monk was able to invent and develop musical ideas.

Through listening and playing musical games, St. Andrews students will develop their ability to improvise as a mode of creative self-expression.

Have a listen to the Thelonious Monk Quartet performing Blue Monk here.
