On Thursday 29th November, the girls gave a stunning performance in Chapel in the form of the Autumn Concert. It set out primarily to celebrate the work of our instrumental ensembles, alongside welcome guest appearances from our Music and Choral Scholar vocal duettists. We began with the iconic Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin, with its astonishing blend of classical and jazz music, showcasing UVI (Year 13) piano soloist Frances, whose brainchild this project was.
What followed was a range of highly-varied performances of superb quality, featuring the String Sinfonia, Wind Band, Strictly Strings, Percussion Ensemble, Big Band, Choral and Music Scholar duettists. Feedback on the concert has been superlative, with a number of audience members commenting that ‘not many schools could produce instrumental music of this standard’. Congratulations to all who took part!
