First Year Concert – A Musical Triumph
Our First Year performed a fantastic concert full of variety and style. It demonstrated the sheer talent in this year group – instrumentalists and singers alike showed great confidence in their solo performances.
There were creative and original versions which included; Shaily R and Tara S performing Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’ on harp and voice, James and Duncan M joining with their sister Connie M to perform a brilliant version of Eva Cassidy’s ‘Wade In The Water’, Lily W performing the dance hit ‘Symphony’ by Zara Larson with a staff band and Sophia Y and Charlotte E performing their acoustic version of ‘Riptide’ by Vance Joy.
Excellent classical performances were given by many pupils but a highlight must be Jaden T’s ‘Arabesque’ by Debussy. Many other performances were memorable and brilliant and included various songs from musical theatre, folk songs and pop songs. The whole year group gathered en masse to form a giant chorus and perform Survivor’s ‘Eye of the tiger’ and ‘Counting Stars’ by One Republic. Congratulations must go to the Fourth Year band for accompanying these so wonderfully. Close Harmony (boys’ choir) should also be congratulated on their renditions of Charlie Puth’s ‘Attention’ and John Legend’s ‘All of Me’. This concert was a wonderful way to celebrate the fantastic music-making that has taking place in First Year. It is so exciting to know that we have such great musicianship in our lower school.
