The Music Department have had a busy start to 2023
26 January 2023
Music and Munch
The first Music and Munch of 2023 featured a real mix of musical genres, from classical piano to musical theatre, and from film score to funky saxophone! The next Music and Munch is on Friday 3rd February.
Recently Chapel has celebrating several different musical traditions with lots of wonderful music. A Gospel Service took place, featuring Michelle W, Jemima T, Summer H, Beatrice G, Levin R, Edward D M, Eduvie O, Jake O and Mr Myers. Their band brought plenty of energy and excitement to the proceedings! The whole school also had a chance to join in with the gospel hits ‘Amazing Grace’, ‘Make Me A Channel’ and, of course, ‘Shine Jesus Shine’.
Returning to the traditional format during the termly service of Choral Evensong, Chapel Choir sang to boarders, parents and staff. The candlelit Chapel created a special atmosphere whilst the choir performed music by Stanford, Balfour Gardiner, Wilby and Parry.
During Monday morning Chapel, Schola Cantorum performed ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’, arranged by Turner, bringing another genre of music to our versatile Chapel space.
Thank you and well done to all the pupils who shared their music.
