Year 7 Concert – Monday 27th June

The Arundel Centre was full on Monday afternoon, with many current Year 7 Parents and ‘incoming’ Year 7 Parents and their daughters to listen to this year’s Year 7 Concert. The first part of the concert consisted of six talented musicians in Year 7 who performed solos and duets. Firstly Imogen B playing the Chaconne by Vitali with incredible virtuosity and from memory. Darcy then played the much loved ‘Swan’ from Saint-Saens’ ‘Carnival of the Animals’ also from memory. Nuha then followed with a lovely Adagio by Bearman on the clarinet and then Imogen played a Chopin Waltz on the piano. Evangelina U enchanted us with her rendition of ‘Jar of Hearts’ which preceded Becky R-A’s passionate performance of ‘Heart of Stone’ from the musical ‘Six’. We were then treated to a duet from Darcy D and Susie D who sang ‘Poor wayfaring stranger’ with much musicality and confidence. Then came the main event with the whole of Year 7 singing a popular medley of songs from Mary Poppins, ably accompanied on the piano by Mrs Caroline Marley. Do listen:
