This term’s Piano Recital was the first of its kind since the beginning of lockdown and as some pupils’ lessons had been very much on and off throughout recent months, we are very impressed with how students have been very keen to perform.
We also thought it was a good opportunity to let our new music scholar Christopher Neal (J4M) from King’s Juniors perform, although this concert would normally be a Senior School occasion. We recorded each pupil in the Recital Hall over a couple of weeks, and despite most of the pupils experiencing ‘recording conditions’ for the first time, many pupils gave a fantastic ‘first-take’ performance – well done to all who took part!
