On the evening of Friday 27 April, the Bishop Centre was transformed into a glitzy black and red themed ‘Jazz Club’, with parents enjoying a three-course meal to a programme of classic jazz repertoire organised by the Music Department.
Guests were greeted by G & L’s lively ‘Swing Band’, who performed two medleys of jazz classics. As courses were served, vocal performances from Abigail Turner, Bronwyn Lowe, Amelia White, Kate Devey, Alexandra Riklin, Molly Mantle, Mia Rolland-Bezem, Aimee Wilmot and Amy Snudden were enjoyed by the audience. The girls looked very glamorous in their full-length evening dresses, with songs ranging from ‘Summertime’ to ‘I Put a Spell on You’ and ‘A Sunday kind of Love’.
We welcomed jazz pianist Dominic Doutney who provided background music as guests enjoyed their meal (professionally served by our World Challenge students), and Ariane Bardonnet, Nina Wittman and Sarah Bettis delighted the audience further with their saxophone and piano ensemble. The evening was a fabulous success and enjoyed by all. With huge thanks to the PTFA and Music Department staff.
