Year 7 and 8 Informal Concert - Hurstpierpoint College

Year 7 and 8 Informal Concert

The first informal concert of the Lent term was hosted in the Music School this week. The Informal concerts are a great opportunity for musicians in years 7 and 8 to perform in a supportive, low-pressure environment. There were a wide variety of musical styles on display, from hard rock to Latin jazz to classical.

The performance started with the prep school Jazz Band performing a blues by Sarah Watts, followed by Sophie playing trumpet, Fleur on violin, Maisie with bassoon, Amanda at the piano, Emily on French Horn, and Evangeline and Sophie performing a piano duet by Kevin Olson. Thomas W then gave his first-ever public performance on drums, followed by Edward on trombone, Oscar with the flute, Ciara playing violin, and a final blast from the Jazz Band to finish the programme.

Parents and teachers were thoroughly entertained by an afternoon of excellent and courageous musical performances, capped off with a well-earned slice of cake afterward!

Thank you to everyone who attended the concert, the support you show at events like these makes them so special for our young musicians and inspires them to relish performing opportunities for years to come. Most of all, we would like to thank and congratulate all of the performers who put on an excellent display of fine, musical work. Ross Dickson, Graduate Music Assistant
