issue0616-music-band-winnersCongratulations to the 55 students who competed in the 2016 Solo Performers’ Competition. Our adjudicators this year were: Mr Richard Percival (Band), Mr Evgeny Sorkin (String), Ms Georgina Andrews (Voice) and Mr Oskar Ling (Piano).

All girls put in a fine effort and several of the performances were particularly noteworthy. Thank you girls and also to the parents and staff who came along to support them. A special thanks also goes to Mr Andrew Basile who did much of the accompanying work on piano.

The winner from each section will play at a forthcoming school assembly and also at this year’s Open Day and Fair.
