Music at Lunchtime – Friday 24th September

Our Music department mantra is ‘music for all’ and never has that been more clearly demonstrated than over the last three weeks of Music at Lunchtime. We began with a full Diploma recital by Talia, followed by excerpts from recital programmes last week. How wonderful then that this week it was the turn of younger members of our community and included three Year 7’s making their debut on the Arundel Stage. Even more remarkable were the instruments featured! Double Bass, Trombone and French Horn!! We have heard ‘Jesu joy of man’s desiring’ many times but never before on the Double Bass; we have now so thank you Rebecca. Eleanor (Trombone) had us toe tapping with ‘Shutdown Samba’. We will be hearing ‘My favourite things’ reverberate around the school over the next term or two but Saira on the French Horn wetted our appetite. It was left to Evangelina (Voice) to give us a glimpse of what our new year 7’s have to offer. My, what remarkable confidence, a born performer, as she thrilled with ‘Turning Tables’ and ‘Skyfall’. Watch this space. In the meantime do listen again here.
