Music for a Summer’s Evening

 Join us this Thursday 16 June for a celebratory and colourful concert in Big School with plenty of solos from our departing Upper Sixth musicians.

We will be dispensing with the traditional concert-hall set up, so do feel free to bring a deckchair or a rug as well as food and drinks and let our pupils serenade you.

Starting at 8.00 pm and directed by Teacher of Music Elizabeth Carrick-Dow and Director of Music Ryan Hepburn, the programme will include:

  • Shostakovich: Piano Concerto No. 2 (first movement) (solo piano: Anthony Yiu)

  • Debussy: Prélude à l’apès-midi d’un faune (solo flute: Emily Jacobs)

  • Purcell: Cold Song (from King Arthur) (solo baritone: William O’Brien)

  • Handel: Why do the Nations Rage (from Messiah) (solo baritone: William O’Brien)

  • Gershwin: Piano Concerto in F (guest solo piano: Christopher Weston)

  • Tavener: Mother of God, here I stand

  • Tarrega: Capricho Arabe (solo Spanish guitar: Ed Davies)

  • Widor: Sonata for Flute (first movement) (solo flute: James Walker)

  • Quilter: Now Sleeps the Crimson Petal (solo baritone: Joe Reed)
