Music Maestro - Walthamstow Hall

Time to mention the wonderful performances we enjoyed courtesy of our marvellous musicians and singers at the end of the Autumn term.

A month of near non-stop musical performances began with Director of Music Mr Castell conducting the Senior School Choir (and church members) in Fauré’s Requiem at a charity concert at The Drive Methodist Church on Remembrance Sunday, raising £1K for the Royal British Legion. It was then straight into rehearsals for the School’s inaugural St Cecilia’s Day Concert at the end of November where eleven different ensembles performed a diverse programme including Dvořák, Holst and some Austrian yodelling!

Musicians then played a key role in the Senior School production of My Fair Lady providing brilliant, energetic orchestral music for the show.

Fresh from ‘I’m Getting Married in the Morning’ and ‘I could have danced all night’, musicians and choirs then prepared for the beautiful and atmospheric Carol Concert at Tonbridge School Chapel. (Pictured is the Senior Choir rehearsing There is no rose).

It’s a fantastic experience performing alongside professional musicians and I’m proud to point out that girls from Years 7, 8, 11, 12 and 13 were all in action.
