Friends and family gathered in the School Hall in the evening on Thursday 21 March for the annual Prep. School Formal Music Concert. It was an opportunity to celebrate the musical talents of pupils (including Choristers and Music Scholars).

The audience was treated to an array of music styles, with several pieces by living composers, including percussionist Evelyn Glennie, cellist Mark Summer and songwriters Dan Reynolds and Wayne Sermon (better known as Imagine Dragons). The string trio of Storrs House gave a repeat performance of their winning entry from the House Music Competition earlier this week.

The evening concluded with a spell-binding rendition of an aria from Bach’s St Matthew Passion with a special guest performance by Mr Morgan on the violin.

Mrs Nathan, Director of Music (Pre-Preparatory and Preparatory Schools)
