Published on 22nd Mar 2024 in Uncategorized

With a packed Constance Green Hall, there was every musical taste catered for at the Spring Concert. The night opened with classical delights from Mrs Leonard’s Symphony Orchestra, the student led Four Seasons String Quartet followed with a stunning rendition of Waltz No 2. Mrs Elliot’s Senior Choir, accompanied on piano by Year 12’s Jack Brierley, sang a moving song from the music Dear Evan Hansen before lifting the audience again to ELO’s Mr Blue Sky.

Chamber Choir, under the direction of Mrs Leonard, performed Ubi Caritas, Ola Gjeilo impressively sang entirely in Latin. This is to be performed by Chamber Choir in St Marks Basilica Venice in July this year. A fantastic medley of songs from Les Miserable was a treat with soloists galore and piano accompaniment from Year 13’s Ethan Cowell. Swing Band made their signature entrance to Brass machine and Lucy Amos’s vocals for Nina Simone’s Feeling Good were full of soul.

Awards were given to many students throughout the evening; for Musicianship and the Musical Director Award. Well done to those who received these: Andre, Jamie, Zoe, Ben, Kirsten, Freddie, Joe, Rob, Alannah and Anneke – all much deserved. Mrs Elliott thanked all our Year 13 students for their contributions to music at St. Aidan’s during their time here. We will miss them, and we know their musical journey isn’t over yet.
Mr Elliott’s wonderful Symphonic Band closed the evening on a high with English Folk Song Suite and Schola Vita. Thanks to all who joined us for a very special evening of music and thanks to Mrs Elliott and colleagues for all you do ensuring our musicians thrive at St. Aidan’s.
