Upper School and Sixth Form Chamber Concert
This term has been like no other in the Music Department, but our students have continued to excel and create exceptional music, both individually and with others in their bubbles. Our GCSE students have taken on a new challenge this year by organising, leading, hosting and editing together a virtual concert rather than a live one. This has involved them learning to use new ICT software and communicating electronically and remotely with those in other year groups so that you, the audience, can enjoy this concert in the comfort of your own home or at a time which suits you.
As our students continue to improve and grow as musicians, we want to keep supporting them as best we can. As many of you know, our concerts moved online in the summer term and we were unable to raise any funds to purchase new resources and instruments for the department and its students. We are currently trying to raise a further £2000 to purchase a pedal harp for our highest-achieving harpists, as well as new music and equipment for our ensembles. If you are able to donate even a small amount to help us reach this target, then please donate what you can via Parent Pay – ‘Chamber Concert’. Everything we receive is very much appreciated, but, of course, this is completely voluntary and there is no obligation to donate. We hope you enjoy this 55-minute concert and can hear just how outstanding and talented our Kendrick community is.
Finally, we thank all of the students who performed in this concert, as well as those that were involved in the process of putting it together. From all of us in the Music Department, we wish you all a wonderful and restful half term.
