24th March 2016
Our talented musicians entertained a host of parents and friends at the annual Lent Term Concert, held on Wednesday 23 March at 6.30pm in the Ravenscroft Theatre.
The concert started stylishly with the Pre-Prep Orchestra, under the direction of Mrs Watson, playing a suite of excellent pieces penned by the wonderful Miss Sellar. Not to be outdone, the Prep String Orchestra followed, their second piece (‘The Creepy Spanish Castle’) matching the backdrop left over from the fabulous 4th Form Production of The Quest. In order, we were then treated to the Guitar Ensemble, Junior & Senior Woodwind Ensembles, an Upper School Chamber Ensemble, Junior & Senior Brass Ensembles, Saxophone Ensemble, BGlee Club, BiG Band, and the Junior & Senior Chapel Choirs, performing a stunning array of varied repertoire. The 13 ensembles all performed musically, and the huge audience responded with appropriately enthusiastic applause at every chance.
Many thanks to all the parents who came to support Music at BG, as well as to the pupils themselves, who worked so hard to put on a concert of which they can all be proud. The ensemble directors and assistants, Mrs Watson, Mr Mourant, Miss Sellar, Mr Pham, Mrs Wood, Mrs Hall, Mrs Heathcote, Mr Ritchie, Mrs Grundy, Mrs Newman and Mr Noble, are to be congratulated for their excellent work with the ensembles.
