Thursday, 22 June
On Thursday, 22 June nearly 100 boys took part in our Instrumental Ensembles Concert. Boys from Year 4 through to Year 8 played in a wonderful range of groups: the guitar ensemble; string training orchestra; concert band; big band string orchestra; a sextet which accompanied Tom Smith performing the slow movement of Shostakovich’s Second Piano Concerto; a combined orchestra which came together earlier this week for the first time having rehearsed in sections and the finale of “One Voice” which involved a number of boys putting their instruments down in order to sing. Lots of the music staff played along side the boys as well as some of our talented staff. It was a wonderful evening celebrating New Beacon music making.
