Instrumental Progress Evening

On the evening of Thursday 7th April 2022, the music department held its first in-person concert since July 2019. The event was very well attended with Big School close to capacity. With over 50 performers on a range of different instruments we enjoyed a wonderful showcase of classical music, jazz, pop and bhangra. The Instrumental Progress Evening is an opportunity for our younger musicians to take centre stage. The evening included the Lower School Guitar Ensemble (comprising year 7 and 8 students), String Ensemble (years 7 to 11), Year 7 Keyboard Ensemble, Year 8 Keyboard Ensemble, as well as solo items from Jovan Mann (dhol), Hritik Bansal (violin), Ziona Paulson (flute), Arjun Sond (classical guitar), Veeran Gill (classical guitar), Gopal Dey (flute), William Brookes (violin), Daniel Alloh (saxophone), Kaden Gabbidon (classical guitar), Abel Shane (violin), Rayhaan Hussain (trombone), Jayan Birdi (dhol) and Angus Huang (classical guitar). All of our soloists were in either year 7 or year 8; some had studied their instrument for almost two years and some only a couple of months.

This concert shows nothing can replace the thrilling experience of hearing live music. Our next event will be the Summer Concert on Thursday 30th June 2022 All of our ensembles will be involved and should be a wonderful way to finish the academic year. We hope you will come and join us.
