THE JOY OF MUSIC
Mr Hemmings, Director of Music, reports on the Autumn Term.
The sheer delight and enjoyment evident in both pupils’ and staff members' faces at the beginning of this term when we were finally able to make music together again was a joy to witness. The pleasure of doing what musicians do together again was slightly tempered by the realisation that this, busiest of terms in ordinary times, was going to be, and has proven to be somewhat quieter than usual in terms of public performing opportunities. Traditionally the Autumn Term brings with it the energy and excitement of preparing world premier performances of newly commissioned music for Remembrance, working closely with the London Mozart Players; rehearsing for the annual musical; getting festive for the Christmas Concert and the Carol Services.
