The Emerging Talent Concert has proved to be an extremely popular event over the last few years and this latest concert was no exception.
In fact, not only did we hear 26 highly commendable performances, but the occasion was supported by a lusty and hearty spread of parents, staff and pupils as well.
The programme was full and varied, and the objective of the concert, which is to promote emerging and hidden talent rather than those that are at the forefront of the Music Department (eg the Music Scholars), was perfectly illustrated. Out of those 26 performers only four Music Scholars took part, with those four performing on their second study instrument. That undoubtedly reflects excellent depth within our musical ranks and continues to ensure that our myriad of junior and senior ensembles is well populated.
Congratulations then to all performers, not forgetting our dedicated accompanists, Clare Toomer, Michael Butterfield and Hamish Brown. This was certainly an uplifting and invigorating closure to the first half of the Lent Term.
