The week started off with a fantastic Elton John Fest courtesy of Lower Sixth Formers Jemima and Leila, accompanied by Mr Tait and Mr Hargreaves of the Music Department.
An enthusiastic audience of staff and Lower Sixth Formers was wowed with excellent performances in the Live Lounge on Monday lunchtime from Jemima and Leila. They, and their accompanists, channelled their inner Elton performing with gusto as well as sporting outfits befitting a 1970s Elton concert. The quartet performed some of Elton’s most famous songs including Don’t Go Breaking My Heart and Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.
There was a change of pace on Thursday when Keira and Clemmie performed for staff and their Year 9 peers. As well as Tom Odell’s Another Love, the duo showcased a mellow version of Banners’ Someone To You, which they had adapted in their music lessons, as well as a lovely, as yet unnamed, composition of their own.
