Year 8 musicians complete the term in style

Our Year 8 musicians completed the informal concert series in style last Friday.  Being some of our most experienced musicians, they are no stranger to performing to an audience. 

Always a delight to hear, they are extremely organised.  It is also fascinating to see how their individual musical talents and tastes have evolved over their time at Elstree.  There is no doubt how much they will flourish musically at their Senior Schools.

Jackie dazzled us with the last movement of a Vivaldi Violin Concerto, while Theo, Julius and Shi Jun gave their forthcoming drumming exam pieces an outing.  Yuyao impressed us with his lovely rich cello tones. Then, Cameron and Rain gave the Long Room grand piano a complete work-out with their fantastic Queen medley and Victory piece respectively.  Rain said he had selected the piece to perform to his peers to wish them success in their forthcoming examinations.

To echo the closing words of the Headmaster – keep up your music as you move on to pastures new.
