Year Ten Talent on Display at Teatime Concert
This week’s Teatime Concert featured the talents of Year Ten pupils. There was a wonderful variety of pieces, from two evocative pieces by Debussy, on the descant recorder by Natasha Lindsay and piano by Ben Brierley, to film music in the form of music from Star War played by Joe Taylor on the trumpet. The concert began with some beautiful Einaudi played on the piano by George McMillan, with further piano playing from Sasha Penlington who played the first movement of Beethoven’s ‘The Tempest’ Piano Sonata No.17.
Several songs were enjoyed in the concert, including Libby Cox and Megan Hepple singing a duet from the recent Tudor hit ‘Six’. Megan also sang a solo – ‘Stranger to the Rain’ by Stephen Schwartz – with Lexie Hubbard, Abi Walter and Sasha Penlington also singing songs from well-loved theatre shows. Kieran Lilley continued the string of songs with ‘Yesterday’ by the Beatles.
Two Grade 8 flute pieces were played stylishly, with Fynn Butler conjuring up the spirit of the dance with Chopin’s ‘Waltz in B minor’ and Isabelle Jones performing Ian Clarke’s haunting ‘Hypnosis’. The concert closed with a band, comprising Kieran Lilley (voice), Arun Mungur (guitar), Thomas Newman (bass) and Ivan Innocent (drums), performing Dire Straits’ ‘Sultans of Swing’, which proved a popular concert closer. The audience of parents and teachers thoroughly enjoyed the talents of our Year Ten Musicians and we congratulate all who performed.
