This Tuesday saw 15 pupils from across the school take to the stage to showcase their performing talents. Due to the recent wet weather we were able to combine the postponed LAMDA platform with this week’s Pre-Prep Informal Concert. It was the first time the school has combined these two events but it worked particularly well. The performances took place in the picturesque chapel at King’s St Alban’s which provided a wonderful backdrop to the occasion.
The LAMDA part of the evening combined a lovely mix of musical items, poems and monologues. There was a great variety of performances on display. It was great for our Pre-Prep children and parents to see what LAMDA involves. It was also a great opportunity for our performers to practice in front of a supportive and encouraging crowd. Many of the LAMDA items will be performed again at the forthcoming Worcester Competitive Arts Festival later this month. Our Pre-Prep pupils thoroughly enjoyed watching the older pupils perform and it is safe to say that a number were inspired by what they saw. Well done to Sienna D and Eshal R, both in Year 3, who were first time performers.
The Informal Concert part of the evening was a brilliant showcase for our young musicians who had all clearly worked hard with their music teachers to prepare for the event. All of the children played beautifully and gave confident performances. Many of the children performed on the piano, but there were also a number of violinists from Year 1 and Year 2. A number of children made their Informal Concert debut including: Sienna Y, Year 2 (Piano) and Aelwen Rees, Year 2 (Flute).
There were some very proud teachers, parents and grandparents who thoroughly enjoyed seeing the pupils take to the stage this week. Well done to all of the children on their superb performances!
