Chapel Arts lunchtime recital
Our talented music students delivered their second lunchtime recital of the academic year at Chapel Arts in the town centre, in collaboration with Chapel Arts and the Cheltenham Music Festival Society during March.
Our Senior Singers opened the concert with Enya’s May It Be, followed by other fabulous vocal solo performances of Franck’s Panis Angelicus, sung by Jaydee, and Torn by Natalie Imbruglia, sung by Abby. Show numbers included Chicago’s All That Jazz, sung by Mia, There’s a Fine, Fine Line from Avenue Q, sung by Daisy and Giants in the Sky from Into The Woods, sung by Thomas.
Instrument performances included Ashim’s piano solo of Mazurka in Gm by Chopin, and Sean’s Scherzo in Bb by Schubert. Luke performed a fantastic baritone horn solo of My Love is like a Red, Red, Rose arranged by Downie, and finally, Josh performed two trumpet solos of Soliloquy by Sparke and Bugler’s Holiday by Anderson.
Our Senior Singers closed the concert with an uplifting rendition of You Raise Me Up by Graham and Lovland.
Head of Music, Matt Cutress, said, “It was wonderful to bring our students back to a venue as atmospheric Chapel Arts. All of the students performed exceptionally, it’s a testament to all their hard work that they're able to perform so well, so consistently. We were all especially grateful that Chapel Arts gave us the opportunity to raise funds for the Ukraine appeal which gave the recital even more meaning.”
