Chapel Concert - An Evening of Musical Delight
The Chapel Concert was held in school on Thursday 8 March. The most accomplished musicians in the school were invited to perform at the concert. They created a sublime evening of music enjoyed by an audience of parents, friends and staff.
A particularly notable feature of the programme was the eclectic nature of the music performed. The concert feature music from the western classical tradition, West Indian gospel music, Hungarian folk tunes, music from America, contemporary pop music and music from the West End shows.
Four of the performers were members of the Upper Sixth. Darcey, Georgia, Jess and Amy were performing in their final Chapel Concert at Upton. They have all made a wonderful contribution to the life of the school in general and to the Music Department in particular. At the end of the concert, they were thanked for the way they have generously shared their talents during their time at Upton Hall.
Mr Steve Roberts and Mrs Julie Oade, two of our instrumental music teachers, made a great contribution to the evening, conducting, accompanying and even arranging the music for performance. Thanks finally must be offered to Mrs Hamilton who is currently in charge of the Music Department. She works tirelessly to ensure that the quality of music at Upton Hall stands comparison with any school in the country.
