AGGS Music Festival

Music Festival 2016

This week saw the showcasing of the talents of 160 performers across 10 different classes at AGGS in our 2nd Music Festival. Both the Church Hall and the Main Hall were buzzing with performances throughout the day, with hundreds of girls able to watch as audience members during the day.

Our 2 adjudicators, Mr Tom Dickinson (Wirral Boys’ GS) and Mrs Kathy Rundell (Wilmslow Prep) gave expert verbal and written feedback to the girls and we are hugely grateful to them in giving of their time to support AGGS in this way.

Thanks too go to Miss Riddle, Mrs Dickinson and Ms Mayall who accompanied over 70 performances and to all the instrumental staff who prepared pupils, including some lovely ensemble arrangements. Endangered instruments was a theme of this year’s festival, with a class showcasing oboe, viola and brass players.

This kind of event wouldn’t be possible without the help of so many administrative staff and parent steward helpers. Particular thanks to Mrs Marshall and Miss Wright who took charge of the adjudicator administration during the day and to Mr Beddow and the caretaking staff for setting up the halls.
