Congratulations to all the poets and musical performers in last week’s Spring Concert. The programme offered something for everyone, full of variety and thoroughly enjoyable. It was great to see Years 7 to 13 all immersed in wide-ranging genres of music-making, often playing in groups which spanned many year groups. A particular well done to Meera Patel, Year 12, whose stunningly beautiful composition for Piano Quintet moved us all. Well done, everyone and thank you to our Music Department! Congratulations to the Clarinet Trio – Iona Salter, Zoe Steinberg and Rosa de’Freitas (Year 10) – who did so well in the prestigious South-East Schools Chamber Music Festival that they have been invited to perform in St John’s Smith Square on Tuesday 13th March. Well done, too, to the 4 chamber groups (16 students) through to the finals of the Spring Grove Music Competition.
Thursday’s Lunchtime Concert
Well done to the girls who participated in the Lunchtime Recital on March 8th, some of whom had never before played in front of an audience. Thanks to Yvette Enyiagu (cello), Jennifer Nio (cello), Izzy Popiolek (trumpet), Abirami Muthukumar (horn), Sanjana Iyer (guitar) and Ganga Nair (guitar). It was also lovely to have such an enthusiastic and supportive audience.
