A Celebration of Music on a Summer’s Evening

We have all missed sharing our love of music making so the thrill of planning a concert for all the KS2 Ensembles to enjoy was a real treat. With rehearsals taking place on alternate weeks for much of this term, the talent of our girls was evident in their ‘Celebration of Music on a Summer’s Evening Concert’. Whilst ensembles may have seemed rather unusual at times in their personnel, the girls have undoubtedly made exciting progress in their instrumental playing this past 15 months and this enabled some very exciting performances in the Senior School Hall.

As a tribute to the support of all things musical from Mr Gibb in his time at the Junior School, we created a programme of wonderful music – such a glorious mix which it was obvious to see the girls were enjoying performing by the smiles on their faces and the performances they gave. From choirs to String ensembles, Brass to Percussion groups, and orchestras with every family of instruments represented, we enjoyed each item and marvelled at the musicianship of girls no older than 11.

What a joy it was to be able to share our collective love of music live streamed with our parents. Bravo girls and Visiting Music Teachers who directed some of the ensembles – you were all fabulous. Thank you Mr Gibb, for encouraging us all to continue to enjoy all things musical. We hope the commissioned song from Mr Hadfield is a lasting memory of your time at the Junior School.
