The Formal Concert 2012

July 18th, 2012

On 17th July the school hall filled up for The Formal Concert. What was most striking about the show was not the talent displayed by the performers, the seamless transitions from piece to piece, the technical expertise or the stage presence you would expect from only the most accomplished of musicians, although these factors all resounded. What really impressed the audience and made the Formal Concert such a success was the variety on offer. From classical piano such as Air by JS Bach, performed by Andrew Lee to modern pop including Let Me Entertain You by Robbie Williams, performed by the Brass Ensemble. No musical stone was left unturned as the students had put together an eclectic mix of music which catered for every taste.

This variety was not just felt from piece to piece but within individual performances. When Year 10 combined Just The Way You Are by Bruno Mars with Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast by Krishnamurthy they created something quite ingenious. Two cultures separated by time and distance came together to create something truly unique which worked remarkably well. Testament perhaps to the richness of culture benefitted by the students at the school and demonstrative of the way this adds value to any creative performance put on by the school.  The only question left remaining for the emotional audience after such a stellar performance was, ‘what will the boys produce in 2013 now that the bar has been set so high?’
