Lunchtime recital

Lunchtime recital
Students crowd the balcony to see the lunchtime performances.
Thursday 12th May 2011 by C. Freeman

Students staged an informal lunchtime music recital for students and staff. The concert, which took place on the ground floor of Performing Arts, was only the second time that the event has been staged.

There are plans to hold the event once every four weeks and the audience response has been enthusiastic, with students lining the first floor balcony to hear.

Performers comprised Sang Ta, Emily O’Brien, Charlotte Fellows and James Walker, all from Year 7, plus Harriet Dunn from Year 8, Katie Sproston from Year 10 and Sixth Former Sophia Haden. Some sang, others played the piano while Year 11 Niamh Bailey and Jo Newton from Year 10 performed a flute duet.

Head of Music Mr Duguid said: ‘It is a new initiative, intended as a casual and comfortable atmosphere, not only for the performers but also for anyone who wants to come along and listen for a few minutes during their lunch break. I have asked students who are willing to play in front of their peers as it gives them an extra opportunity to perform outside the boundaries of a more formal concert. It is all about enthusing the students and encouraging them to pursue music at GCSE level.’
