The Sing & Swing Concert filled the Main Hall on 6 February, presented with flair by Seyi and Lola. As ever, there was a wonderful atmosphere to the concert, the Main Hall lit artistically by Nina. We were treated to an eclectic mix of styles with Swing Band playing' Highlights from Grease', Glenn Miller's 'In The Mood', exciting film scores including The Simpsons, John Williams Movie Adventures and the atmospheric Dr Who, amongst others.
Seyi & Lola led girls in a conga for 'We Are Family', after a spirited 'Lady Gaga Dance Mix' from Synchronicity. Jazz Band inspired further dancing during 'Earth Wind & Fire Dance Mix' & 'Birdland', driven by virtuosic drumming from Aliya.
Classy ensembles provided a contrast to the larger groups with fine performances from the Clarinet & Saxophone Quartets and the Flute Group, performing the Mr Stokes' Ostinato Formulato. Vocal solos included Maria, Ishara and Tejal entertaining the audience as they arrived and Rose and Ruby giving spirited vocal performances during the concert, accompanied by Mr Stokes.
The Barbershop, clad in matching outfits, performed the Andrew Sisters' 'Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy Band' with members of the Jazz Band and Stella, Liv and Kayla performed a show-stopping, 'Someone in the Crowd' from La La Land with other members of Year 10 singing & playing in a band, arranged by Lauren Gall and choreographed by Miss Khosla.
This concert really demonstrates the talent, team work and energy from girls in all year groups - well done to all involved!
