On Monday 24th March, the annual music recital took place in the school hall at 7pm. This was a chance for A level students and various orchestras to perform music. The A level students were Toby Wilson (flute), Sam Wilson (piano), Scott Jones (guitar), James Bunker (clarinet and guitar), Peter Tsatsamis–Cooper (piano, vocals), Eric Chantler (trumpet), Ethan Herman (piano), David Thompson (guitar) and Otto Scott (cello). Some of their pieces included Trumpet Concerto in E flat, Sonata in E minor, and 'Let it Go', a song from the new film Frozen.
The standard was incredibly high - was brilliant to listen to. The evening was rounded off by the string orchestra playing ‘Summer’ from the Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi, and a memorable performance of Sibelius’ Finlandia from the chamber orchestra, consisting of over forty students and teachers. Thank you to Mr Tansley and Miss Gee for organising it and all their hard work in the music department.
