Our recent Summer Showcase was a fantastic and varied evening of music, featuring many of our young musicians from across the school. There were many great performances demonstrating the huge breadth of talent from across the whole spectrum of year groups, from year 9 up to the Upper-sixth.
The concert featured a vast selection of styles and genres ranging from German lieder and Romantic piano music to contemporary works and show tunes, interspersed with Jazz, Country and even a brief nod to some late ‘90s trance.

Our percussionists turned out in force with performances on kit and Marimba along with a tuned percussion duet and the first outing of our newly formed Percussion ensemble. These were joined by pianists, guitarists, string players, vocalists, saxophonists, flautists and many others.
It was great to have so many performers and a strong audience turn-out to provide support and we look forward to welcoming everyone back for our end-of-year Summer Celebration concert on the 26th June starting at 7:00pm in the Bathurst garden.
