Performing Arts Evening

Posted: 8th November 2017

An evening with Years  7 & 8 

After last summer’s stunning but somewhat lengthy concert, we decided to provide more opportunities for performance but limit the year groups participating..  So, a first.  An evening for pupils in Years 7 and 8.

At first glance, I wondered if we had been over optimistic that we could fill an hour with performers from the upper school.  However, it was soon apparent that we have a plethora of talent in these two year groups.  The dance students delighted us with both ballet and contemporary dance.  Lizzie showed what could be achieved in just a couple of tap dancing lessons.

So, from singers, violinists, flautists and pianists, we were treated to a continuous stream of talent.  The Year 7 Glee choir - after some initial reluctance to take to the stage, performed Can’t Stop the Feeling superbly.  Jess and Milly performed, to the tune of World Unite, a rap with their own lyrics.  We had several Drama contributions including Lucy and Beatrice who had learned their LAMDA piece in a matter of weeks and gave a polished performance.

Despite some technical hitches - is there a sound engineer in the house? - the evening was a resounding success.  As ever, one of the highlights was Guthrie in his trademark trilby, delighting the audience with his rendition of You Know I’m no Good.

A huge thank you to all the performers and their teachers without whom the evening would not have been possible.
