What a spectacularly busy end of term it has been for the Music Department! We welcomed two examiners at the beginning of the last week of term for two days of examining with the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music and the Trinity Guildhall. Everyone appeared to leave the exam room happy and we patiently await the results.
On Wednesday, in true King’s style, we presented an array of talent from our able musicians in the Summer Concert. An emotional last performance from Guy Fenton performing None but the Lonely Heart by Tchaikovsky left not a dry eye in the house and large group performances from the Orchestra, Wind Band and Brass Group entertained us all. Many soloists performed beautifully and King’s Katz took to the stage to amaze us with their musical agility and brilliance.
On Thursday evening, the Big Band set up for an evening of cabaret in the marquee on the College grounds. They performed a range of hits, from classics such as September by Earth, Wind and Fire, to the more modern Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars. Soloists included Olivia Chamberlain and Will Cashmore. The audience had a thoroughly good time dancing to the band an evening to be remembered.
