125th Anniversary | Barbican Concert

Over 150 students, alumnae and staff performed in a spectacular music concert at the Barbican Centre on Tuesday evening. The concert celebrated 125 years of music at the school, as part of our anniversary celebrations.

The evening began with City Overture, a new piece of music created by Paul Griffiths, from the Guildhall School of Music, and our Music Scholars. The Senior Orchestra performed Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet Suite No. 2 and the String Ensemble gave an excellent performance of Elgar's Enigma Variations: Nimrod. The second half of the concert began with Vaughn Williams' Fantasia on Greensleeves, led by conductor Alice Farnham, before Director of Music, Dr Berryman, took to the stage to conduct a full choir and orchestra for Vivaldi's Gloria. 

Photographs of the concert are available to view in our Media Gallery. For more information on our 125th Anniversary, please visit our events page.
