The final Lunchtime Live concert of this academic year was held this week and featured some fantastic performances.
The concert commenced with a stylish and note-perfect performance from the Fourth Year Piano Trio featuring Chi Chi (Piano), Cyrus (Clarinet) and Anthea (Flute). They performed Rae’s jazz pieces: First Class Single, Watching the Rain, and Secrets.
The Clarinet Quartet which features Ben (Bass Clarinet) Cyrus (Clarinet) Timothy (Clarinet) and Max performed Debussy and Berlin; again, these were superb performances.
There were four soloists, and they are commended for giving such successful performances: Elisha (Singing), Isobel (Oboe), Seb (Cello) and Jae (Piano).
It was fantastic to hear ‘Fretknots’, Caterham School’s classical guitar ensemble perform.
Lastly, the String Quartet gave their debut performance of Eine Kleine Nachtmusik. Bella, Harry, Frances and Caitlyn all performed with such stylistic awareness and we look forward to see them continue to develop their superb musicianship.
Lunchtime Live is a fantastic opportunity for pupils to gain performance experience; it is an informal concert and any pupils are encouraged to get involved. For more information please speak to one of the music department staff.
Finally, I’d like to thank all the musicians who have performed in the 2017-18 Lunchtime Live series and I look forward October for the next one to start!
