Spring Concert Review

Published 18 April 2025

On 25 March, our talented musicians took to the stage to give us their Spring Concert. Some Year 12 students told us what it was like to be involved…

“Knowing that all forces of the performance: the orchestra, choir and soloists, were faced with both challenging and ambitious repertoire, the musicianship utilised by each and every contributing member was astonishing. The concert offered an abundance of musical styles, from film scores like ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ to the more tranquil moments from the talented A Level music students. They played solos from exquisite composers like Poulenc and Debussy.

We were also presented with a wonderful arrangement for percussion by a current A Level music student – Cole Bowers, alongside contributions from the Art, Dance and Tech departments that truly brought the Senior Band’s performance of Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals to life.

Overall, this was a concert to be remembered from St Bart’s, which couldn’t have been achieved without the guidance and organisation from all of the Music department. Many thanks especially to Mrs Robertson for maintaining such high quality opportunities for the students within the school, whilst also setting time aside to create such special performances like this Spring Concert.”
