A very enjoyable Jazz and Acoustic Evening was held on Friday, 6th May with many of our school bands taking part, our choir and also some great performances from staff.
Special thanks to Miss Paula Thompson who sang a Bossa Nova number and to Mr David Hammer who played his vibraphone – an instrument we have not heard at school for some years.
It was a very informal and relaxed evening with a great atmosphere in the Hall – thanks to Mr Ness for those lights!
Thanks also to FEGS for running the bar and – of course, to all the students who performed and their friends and families who came to support them.
Our next Concert will be our Summer Music Soiree on Friday 8th July.
The Battle of the Bands finally returned to the EGS stage on Friday, 25th March – the last Battle being fought in March 2019!
All our school bands performed brilliantly during the evening together with two student-led bands.
Awards were made for the best guitarist, drummer, bass player, singer and for featured instruments and the final winner was The Apprentice Band, who received the silver trophy at the end of the evening.
A huge thank you to Hannah Stratton who was our judge for this event, to our tutors who led the bands – Mr Tate-Lovery, Mr Escott and Mr Waters – to all our parents for supporting the bands so enthusiastically and, of course, to all the students who took part. You made us very proud.
The next music event is the Jazz and Acoustic evening on Friday, 6th May
It is with great regret that the Key Stage 3 Concert due to take place on 25th February has been cancelled.
The Concert takes place to showcase the talents of Years 7 – 9 and especially to give all the Year 7 students the opportunity to sing together in a mass choir. Because of the Covid restrictions in place until very recently, it has not been possible to run singing rehearsals in our Year 7 classes and so preparation for this Concert could not take place. We are very sorry for the disappointment this will cause both our students and you.
However, the Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 bands will have an opportunity to perform in the Battle of the Bands which is fixed for Friday 25th March. Any students who were hoping to perform solos or duets in the Key Stage 3 Concert should come and see me with a view to performing in either the Jazz and Acoustic Evening or at the Summer Music Soiree.
If any Year 7 student would like to sing in school, they are most welcome to join our Choir which rehearses every Wednesday lunchtime in Room C1 under Miss Paula Thompson. Individual singing lessons with Miss Thompson are also available (£145 per term).
Once again, my apologies for the cancellation of this event. We are very much hoping that this will be the last event we will have to cancel because of Covid restrictions.
If you have any queries or this or any other forthcoming music event, please do not hesitate to email me or ring on the number below.
With many thanks,
Ms Cathy Penfold
