Boys’ School Middle School Music Evening
September 16, 2016 at 11:17 AM
‘When the Saints go marching in,’ was a fantastic opening piece to set toes tapping at last night’s Middle School music concert. Played by the orchestra, a number of our senior boys took the time to come and play in support of our youngest musicians.
Barely tall enough to look over the rostrum, MC’s for the evening, Sean Trombitas and George Wilby were supremely confident in their roles and kept the concert flowing as boys and small ensembles stepped up to play.
The evening closed with the Saint Kentigern Singers, an all-comers choir for boys who simply love to sing. Just as the concert opened on a high, so it closed with the boys belting out Gershwin’s ‘I’ve got Rhythm!’
Following the choir’s performance, Principal, Mr Peter Cassie said, ‘When I see these ‘little angels’ in our choir, I find it hard to believe that it’s the same boys I see rough and tumble on the field at lunchtime!’
Mr Cassie went on to say that nowadays, praise can often be too free-flowing, but this was an occasion where it was truly deserved and the boys could be proud of the applause. It was a pleasure to see each boy, albeit slightly nervous, introduce himself and the name of his piece – and then finish playing with a huge smile knowing that it was a job well done!
