Senior Choir transformed the nursery rhyme Old MacDonald had a farm into a musical masterpiece at this year’s Prep School Music Festival. Full of expression, complete withcountryside accents, and some very authentic farmyard animal noises, it was an original fun-filled performance.

A wonderful evening celebrating all the musical talent at the Prep School showcased both individual performances and many of the School’s ensembles including 2 orchestras and numerous chamber groups. The concert continued with a moving performance from the Chamber Choir of Remember me, by Bob Chilcott, which had several members of the packed hall reaching for a tissue, especially as the girls had learnt some sign language to complement their singing. Well done girls.

The audience were also treated to the winning performances from the House Music competition; Joe Pineger playing his grade 7 piece Poisoned Sketches by T Carter, Michel Lei, Year 5 astounded us all with his brilliant Intrade on the violin and Tomas Richardson who won the All-round Music Cup played an Introduction & Polonaise, also on the violin. A wonderful evening ended with the Swing Band playing an energetic La Bamba, which was so fantastic the audience demanded an encore. What a fantastic way to end a wonderful half-term.
