Pupils were invited to perform music of all types at the Open Concert on Tuesday 28th November, and the first fifteen soloists and ensembles who signed up to participate certainly did not disappoint with the variety, virtuosity and vibrancy of their performances. Among the most challenging works performed were movements from Saint-Saens Oboe Sonata, Kabalevsky’s Violin Concerto, Malcolm Arnold’s Clarinet Sonatina, Bach’s First Violin Suite and Faure’s Elegie, performed by Hansen (10GA), Kangmin (10GA), Christian (10AGS), Kai (10AGS) and Joseph (8RXH) respectively. Brilliant solo performances were also offered by many junior pupils including Tiago and Nikhil (7OM), Jack and Adi (7TW) and Teddy (7HES). A highlight of the evening was the Guitar Ensemble’s toe tapping performance of La Bamba, complemented by two other well-known tunes: Mission Impossible and Good King Wenceslas. Two rock bands offered an uplifting end to the concert with the student-led Senior Rock band performing The Rare Occasions’ Notion and the School Rock Band presenting songs by Adele, Oasis and The Beatles.
