After the second lockdown and much individual practising at home to foundation tracks, our 2021 Rock, Pop and Jazz Concert was a live, virtual release at the end of the Spring Term, with the added bonus of some of the numbers recorded at school once we were allowed back! Brass Band kicked off proceedings by effervescing mellifluously through ‘Hey Jude’ with a sumptuous full brass sound.
We also featured our sparkling Upper 6th form Camerata in a powerful performance of ‘For Once in My Life’, the wonderful Decibelles in a superb close-harmony ‘Valerie’, and our L6 Scholar singers with a devastatingly sultry ‘Fever’. Our dazzling Senior Wind Quintet performed a toe-tapping Charleston with aplomb and we had an optimistic lockdown ‘Reviewing the Situation’ production from our A level musicians.
Of course, it wouldn’t be the R, P & J concert without some R, would it? So our Rock Band gave a very cool performance of Rihanna’s ‘Love on the Brain’.
As the finale, and for the first time this academic year (thanks to the genius of the wondrous Mr Traves), we managed to record our 3rds & L4 Minchkins in a gorgeous performance of ‘Fix You’ by Coldplay.
