Outstanding Summer Concert

18th June 2019

On Tuesday 11 June, 180 performers took part in the annual Summer Concert in the Ark.  Once again this event was the highlight of the musical calendar at Danes Hill.  The Orchestra started the proceedings with rousing renditions of I Vow To Thee My Country and Land of Hope and Glory. There were memorable performances by our Instrumental Ensemble and superb solos by E Van Mook (piano), J Eon Park (piano) and J Foster (drums) and a beautiful violin duet featuring P Brandon and L Gartside. The first-half was brought to a close with our ever-popular Jazz Band playing the Peter Gunn Theme.

The second half opened with the Middle School Choir raising the roof with their exuberant singing! And once again, we were in awe of the sheer musical quality of our very special Chamber Choir.

This year’s finale was a special arrangement by Mrs Marr and Mr Falshaw of James Bond 007 – Shaken, Not Stirred – a perfect end to a perfect year of music-making.  Congratulations to all our performers, and also to those in the audience who managed to acquire a seat in a full-capacity house!
