Young performers in Years 5 and 6 impress the audience

Young performers in Years 5 and 6  impress the audience

I did not think I would ever compare our Performing Arts evenings to the M25, but here goes! The latter was designed to ease congestion. We added another performance evening into the calendar year for the same reason, but this has just resulted in more and more talented performers wishing to take part. That is where the similarity ends as it is always a pleasure to sit in the audience at one of our many Performing Arts events!

From pupils who have had just three lessons to the more seasoned performers, our pupils all played, danced and spoke their way through the evening with assurance. Any stage nerves were firmly dealt with by a small talking to - with excellent results.

It is so hard to highlight individuals when everyone was a star for the night but I shall try...from our pianists who linked their playing with some vocals, to Theo playing Star Wars, some lovely clarinet playing by our Year 6 girls and Max’s fantastic jazz number - I just loved the piano part, Max! Our Contemporary Dance and Ballet ensembles, not forgetting our solo dancer, who gave Strictly some lessons in poise. There was some spectacular singing -  both solo and choir - and what a range of genres. Our two string players - I always think these are amongst the most difficult instruments to play as you have to place your fingers so carefully to make your notes - but then, I might be biased! The solo acting and the hilarious 'A Case of Mistaken Identity'. Drummers always make an impact and Tuesday’s performance was no exception. Did you see the exodus to the other side of the hall, Zeal?!  

A huge thank you to all the teachers, both in and out of school, for the support that they give these budding young performers.
