Pupils in Kingfishers and Lower School wowed audiences of proud parents with their super Summer Concerts.
Lower School put on a wonderful concert for parents, which was a mixture of ensemble, solo choral performances. Junior Choir started off the concert with two jazzy numbers followed by a number of soloists from Year 3 who had just begun learning their instrument in September. Then Training Band took to the stage for their debut performance with two songs, Frere Jacques and Buddy’s Boogie.
This fantastic show was followed by soloists from both Year 3 and Year 4, who performed on a wide range of instruments. Afterwards, Lower School Strings took to the stage with three items to perform, shortly followed by a cello trio and the very talented soloists in Year 4.
Bringing the show to its conclusion, Street Dance Group wowed the audience with their dance routine. The concert ended with Junior Choir performing the Spanish song, Guantanamera and When I Grow Up from the Musical, Matilda. A piece that many of the children have thoroughly enjoyed learning. They all did themselves proud and performed to the best of their abilities.
Later in the week, Kingfishers also delivered a wonderful Summer Concert. Everyone had their moment in the spotlight whether performing a solo, singing as part of a choir or performing in an ensemble. The Performing Arts Choir (who performed earlier in the year as part of the Performing Arts Festival at Cheltenham Town Hall) gave an excellent rendition of two songs, the Year 1 Crotchet group gave a highly commended performance of Blueberry Pie, and then the Year 2 recorders performed. 2D performed Hot Cross Buns, 2G performed Two at Twilight and 2S performed Jazzamatazz.
The show culminated in a performance by Kingfisher Street Dance Group shortly followed by everyone joining in with This Little Light of Mine. What a wonderful way to end the Half Term!
