On Tuesday 18th May we enjoyed another popular King’s St Alban’s Informal Zoom Concert. Every year group in the school, from Reception to Year 6 was represented, with nineteen children taking part.
The audience enjoyed performances on the flute, violin, ’cello, piano, voice, recorder and even the French horn. Traditional tunes, from across the British Isles, songs from musicals and classical music all made an appearance in this wonderfully varied programme.
We welcomed a number of first-time performers to this concert alongside our seasoned regulars. Daniel (Rec), Charlotte (Y3) Tommy (Y5) and Henry (Y5) all took to the stage for the first time and Rory (Y4) gave his first performance on the French horn. They played beautifully and we hope that this will be the first of many appearances at Informal Concerts.
As ever, the Zoom concert format allowed friends and families to join us from all over the country. This has been an unexpected bonus and although we are looking forward to returning to live concerts in our beautiful Chapel, it has been lovely to enjoy a surprise positive outcome from the pandemic.
Well done to all our musicians. It was clear that everyone had worked really hard to prepare their pieces and the standard of performance was very high. Some brave parents even took to the stage alongside their children as very able accompanists. We are so grateful to them – and indeed to all our parents for their wholehearted support.
This event was a real treat, and a lovely way to end the day. Congratulations everyone!
