Instrumental Progress Evening

Forty one students performed to a large, enthusiastic, nearly full Big School at our ‘Instrumental Progress Evening’.  This annual concert is a fantastic opportunity for our budding musicians at the beginning of their instrumental journey to show off their progressing skills.  The majority of performances came from the boys in years 7 and 8, but with a few year 9 boys who have taken up new instruments. We also had the support of a few more experienced year 9 and 10 performers who played in ensembles to support the less experienced beginners.  A grateful shout out to Daniel Alloh in 10 Nelson who supported and performed with the woodwind players as their teacher was not able to attend the concert.

We were favoured by solo performances from Tiziano Pasqualini (saxophone), Oscar Cawsey (piano), Ziona Paulson (Flute), Hritik Bansal (violin), Sukhmandeep Sanghera (Trombone), Glory Anishere (piano), Brandon Sidhu (guitar), Nicholas Bob (violin), Mikael Mahmood (saxophone), Joe Marra (guitar), Sanjeevan Chaggar (piano), Richie Rogers (viola), Sebastian Fernando (trumpet), Alvin Chan (violin), Ziheng Yin (clarinet), Arjun Bagha (violin), Guanghi Li (tuba), Mohammed Zakaria (guitar, and Abel Shane (violin). The evening also included performances by our year 7 guitar ensemble, string ensemble, dhol ensemble, woodwind ensemble and our junior keyboard ensemble.  There was a range of styles and themes throughout the night, with our woodwind team covering much of the repertoire of John Williams film scores. ‘Well done’ to the boys who performed and a big thank you to the teachers and families who work to support their progress.  Our next concert with be the Summer Concert in Big School in July.
