This year’s Christmas Concert was an evening of fine, festive fun- Park High’s best yet! Our young musicians provided a 150 strong audience with a real variety of musical breadth; from our nationally acclaimed Dhol drummers, to the serene Chamber Strings rendition of 'Halo'. We were treated to a Jubilee inspired performance from the Staff choir; Park High’s BBC Singers Choir homage to James Bond’s ‘Skyfall'; a debut performance from our new Chamber Orchestra and our annual show openers the Concert Band. This year’s concert featured a new conductor, Shahid Wahab in year 12, who led our String Ensemble brilliantly in their performance of ‘Go Go Joseph’. The Guitar Ensemble took us on a journey to the Greek Islands and the Andes. Our popular RnB band closed the first half with ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’. Truly inspired by the musical creations of the cultural Olympics and Diamond Jubilee of 2012 we finished the concert with a memorable finale of 'SING' leaving us literally singing all the way home.
A special thanks to the Music Department, Miss Gillot and Mr Bailey. Thank you to Miss Shah and Miss Lambert for expertly serving the mulled wine and mince pies. Finally thank you to all our young musicians, parents and governors for your commitment and support with the evening.
We look forward to our next event The Young Musician of Park on Thursday 14th February.
