News from the Music Department

The Performing Arts have had a busy start to 2021 – making the most of the gradual steps back in to live performance, after a challenging year of online rehearsals and concerts.

Year 7 students have been enthusiastically embracing the many musical opportunities on offer, from the new Choral groups such as Broadway Chorus and Soul Sisters, to the wide choice of instrumental music lessons. It has been inspiring to observe their willingness to try new experiences.

Orchestra rehearsals resumed in February with their new location in McAuley Hall and a new repertoire of popular classics. Their performance in the Winter Concert in June should not be missed!

It has been pleasing to see the steady growth of the Prelude Ensemble as younger musicians learn more about their instruments and the art of playing together, as they rehearse on Friday lunchtimes. It is a great way to spend time with friends while brushing up new musicianship skills.

These are just a few of the many activities which keep the PAC area buzzing each day of the week. The first Lunchtime Concert for 2021 will be on Friday March 26 in Room 38, featuring some of our College soloists.
