Last night the Music Department presented their annual Autumn Concert.
The concert showcased G & L’s orchestras (including the newly formed Junior Chamber Orchestra), a selection of instrumental ensembles, and our choirs. The audience were treated to a diverse programme of music: from the Concert Band’s ‘Phantom of the Opera’ medley, to the rousing ‘Pirates of Penzance’ overture performed by the Senior Chamber Orchestra. The second half exhibited the dulcet tones of the choirs with music by Bob Chilcott (the Year 8 & 9 Choir’s rendition of ‘Like a Singing Bird’ was particularly moving) and some Ivor Novello to finish.
The girls looked the part in their new ‘all-black’ concert dress and cheers of ‘encore’ by one parent suggested that the audience really enjoyed all that they heard. Well done to all involved for a fabulous evening.
