Spring Music Concerts

At the end of the Spring Term, there were two music concerts in College Hall which featured a large number of pupils who all performed to a high standard.

The Young Performers’ Concert, with eighteen performers offering string, piano and woodwind playing as well as a range of singers, gave a heartening sense that we are gradually returning to normal life. Increasingly, parents and friends are taking the opportunity to hear these concerts, leading to a warm atmosphere for our younger musicians who enjoyed the support and offered some fine performances. Please put  Wednesday, May 18th and Wednesday, June 15th 4.00 pm into your diaries for more such delights!

Cleobury Concert

The Spring Term  Cleobury Concert was an optimistic and affirmative presentation of a wide variety of music by some of King’s most advanced musicians. We were also lucky enough to have Nicholas Cleobury OV with us during the afternoon to offer encouragement and advice to pupils rehearsing (something we intend to build upon in the future).

Guitar Concerts

Amongst the many soloists (with strings, woodwind, brass, guitar, piano and organ all well represented), the concert opened with the Guitar Group beautifully playing songs by The Stereophonics and Metallica, featured the combined Flute Groups playing David Bowie halfway through, and closed with three songs from the Chamber Choir, including Shchedryk, their hit-single available on iTunes and other music platforms.

Flute Concerts

Many performers were making their Cleobury Concert debuts, including a chamber-music group playing Handel’s second oboe sonata, with pupils on oboe, ‘cello and chamber organ.

The final Cleobury Concert of the school year will be held in College Hall on Tuesday, July 5th at 7 pm – put the date in your diary, and come and hear final performances from our leavers and other pupils.
