Solo Concerts

Any person who has had to present anything in front of a group of people will understand the nervousness with which youngsters experience when preparing for a performance.

The 30 solo concerts in every year given by the Music department include informal afternoon concerts in boarding houses. These attract half a dozen or so musicians with little or no experience and are given in front of an audience of supportive parents and students.

More formal concerts are called platform concerts and take place in the Recital Room. Students wear all black. Although the platform concerts are a little more formal, they are still open to all students.  

There are also jazz evenings, boarders’ concerts and gigs throughout the school year.

What I enjoy most about concerts is the chance to let the audience feel what I am feeling, to think what I am thinking, and to see what I see in the piece
