Our Christmas concerts this year showcased just over 200 girls performing in all 16 choirs, orchestras, bands and ensembles. Our A level musicians featured as soloists, in addition to Hannah Addenbrooke as new Y7 bassonist and Eleanor New as Y8 double bassist. The atmosphere was wonderful with packed halls both evenings.
It is hard to pick out the highlights, as there were so many and every single performer deserves praise. However, the first performance of the Y10 Melodivas, String Orchestra’s ‘St Pauls’ suite’ by Holst, Chamber Choir’s ‘Stars’ (complete with tuned glasses!), the newly formed brass ensemble and the final combined Junior and Senior choir ‘Christmas lullaby’ have to be mentioned as real highlights.
Thanks must go to all the music staff, instrumental teachers, associate and caretaking staff and Miss Bown for her technical expertise, without whom none of this would have been possible.
Looking forward to hearing soloists, choirs, flute and brass ensemble performing at the Carol Service at St Mary’s church, Bowdon on Tue 20th December.
