Music at Lunchtime – Friday 14th January 2022

Last Friday we had the first of our recitals for 2022 and what a treat we had for the very substantial audience of students, staff and parents that were in the Arundel Centre. The programme started with a real fizzbanger in the shape of Abreu’s ‘Tico Tico’ played by our fabulous Senior Flute Ensemble (Salma, Molly, Emily, Madeleine, Mabel, Molly, Alice, Elizaveta). Cristina then gave a jazzy performance of Bonsor’s ‘Serenata’ on the recorder; what a beautiful sound she produced! Then followed two debut Year 7 performances by Kéle and Emilka singing with real confidence, ‘Castle on a cloud’ and the ‘Skye Boat Song’ respectively. Amber is currently waiting for the result of her recent grade VIII piano examination and she performed Hopekirk’s ‘Air’ from her programme with real musicality and from memory! Finally Anna sang the lovely ‘Fall leaves, fall’ by Field with such maturity; she is certainly a star of the future!
