All the Juniors took part in a wonderful Music Concert in the Hall in front of an audience of parents, grandparents, siblings and friends. Each Form performed an individual piece, Forms 3 and 4 on their recorders, Form 5 singing ‘We all stand together’ and Form 6 producing their own interpretation of John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’.
The music of Lennon and McCartney was represented elsewhere in the concert, in keeping with our recent theme of people who have changed the world (Form 6 assembly 28th March). Orchestra played ‘Yellow Submarine’ which they also performed at the Young Musician Contest in March. There were alos prefomances by String Group, Band and Choir.
Solo performances included Jasmine Clarke and Alice Hornsby on the piano, Luke Lewis and Bethany Cartwright on clarinet and Ben Kirkwood on trumpet. Duets were performed by Bethany and Rosie Staniforth (clarinet/flute) and Jasmine and Mollie Bicknell (clarinet/cornet). Rosie-Mae Abel sang a beautiful vocal solo, ‘Castle on a Cloud’.
Head of Music Mrs Roberts would like to thank Mrs Needham, Mr Willis and Mr Tryner for their hard work and support during this year. Thank you also to parents who support their children at concerts and encourage them to practice their instruments.
Well done to all Highfields Juniors who performed tonight!
