The Colours of Music
On Tuesday 20 March, the Senior School Music Department hosted the annual Spring Concert. The concert showcased the talents and hard work of all of the Senior School Music Ensembles, and featured a new theme for this year: colour!
There were performances from the Orchestra, Big Band, Senior Guitar Ensemble, Cantata, Pulse, Male Vocal Group, Vocal Quartet, Woodwind Ensemble, String Orchestra, Cello and Bass Ensemble, Large Brass as well as a performance of “The Greatest Show” (from the new hit musical ‘The Greatest Showman’) featuring all performers in the finale! Each group provided its own colourful repertoire with pieces such as “Black Jack”, “Mr Blue Sky”, “Fields of Gold”, “A Whiter Shade of Pale”, “Green Onions” and “Pink Panther”.
The concert supported the charity ‘School in a Bag’ by selling a variety of colourful baked goods at the beginning of the concert and by holding a collection on the door at the end. The Music Department are proud to have raised BD246 for the initiative which is being led by Lee Churchill, a teacher at St Christopher’s Infant School who has recently been named as the Country Charity Liaison Officer for ‘School in a Bag’ in Bahrain.
The evening of music was a great success and featured all of the Music teachers wearing particularly brightly-coloured outfits! The hall was decorated with a variety of colourful items to match the concert theme and the audience waved glow sticks in the air for the finale. The event also featured two student comperes: Liela Al Sugair and Luke Wilson, both in Year 12, who guided the audience through the evening with a range of colourful facts and jokes.
The question is… What will next year’s theme be…?
