Winter Concert

January 7th, 2015

The Senior Choir opened the evening


The Music School closed the Autumn term and 2014 at Central Foundation Boys’ School with an hour long music concert featuring a variety of music performed by the boys.

Over 150 friends, colleagues, parents and partners were on hand as the show began with the Senior Choir, joined by a professional brass quartet, singing Agnus Dei. The Latin work is part of a larger piece by Karl Jenkins that the Senior Choir sang earlier on this year at the Royal Albert Hall as part of a European schools choir of 600 pupils. The Junior Choir also performed, singing Katherine Lucas’ Winter Solstice.

The Strings Ensemble performed the main theme from Star Wars


The Concert Band and String Ensemble each performed instrumental film scores, with the James Bond theme followed by John Williams’ main theme from Star Wars. A trio of piano, violin and tuba also performed an instrumental set of music by Vivaldi from his Sonata in A Major.

Throughout the evening Mr Wells, Director of Music, recognised the effort and achievements of the 100 boys who make up the Music School, starting rehearsals an hour before school begins. He presented awards in 12 different categories, awarding each winner with both a certificate and a gold version of the Music School badge.

The FretWrx guitar group closed the show


After solo performances from James Keagan, singing Walking in the Air, and Eniola Majekodunmi singing Bring Him Home, the FretWrx guitar band played the concert out with an instrumental version of Guns N’ Roses’ Sweet Child o’ Mine followed by Dobie Gray’s The In Crowd, with Derek Nightingale on vocals.
