Music Ensembles Deck the Halls with Melodies of the Season

Music Ensembles Deck the Halls with Melodies of the Season

On Friday 8 December, Farnborough Hill's Music ensembles came together to provide an evening of festive cheer in the Christmas Celebration.  The Swing Band performed a variety of Christmas classics as the audience arrived.  This was followed by the ever-burgeoning String Group, led by Music Captain Annabel (U6CSK), who played polished renditions of Winter Wonderland and Little Drummer Boy.

The Year 7 and Junior Choirs joined forces in a powerful and wholehearted performance of Jazz Gloria.  The evening also saw our two Rock School bands make their long-awaited debut, giving spirited performances of Underneath The Tree and Jingle Bell Rock.  The Year 9 Music pupils performed a joyful interpretation of In Dulci Jubilo which they had devised in lessons, and Year 7 Deplanck Scholar, Liduo (7A), delighted the audience with a jazzy piano solo called New Kid.

Audience and pupils alike sang the beloved carols O Little Town of Bethlehem and O Come All Ye Faithful, with the Senior Choir providing soaring descants; these were accompanied by the magnificent Orchestra, who also concluded the evening with an exciting Christmas medley titled 'Tis The Season.  The Christmas Celebration was a testament to the talent, dedication, and collaborative spirit of the School's Music community.  Thank you to all pupils and staff involved.
