Upper Sixth musicians take final bow

Upper Sixth musicians take final bow

This year’s Headmaster’s Invitation Concert saw the Miller Theatre packed to the rafters as our talented Upper Sixth musicians took to the stage for one final time. 

Parents, students, staff, alumni and friends of the RGS delighted throughout the evening as our gifted performers treated them to an array of recitals, which took them on a musical journey through the ages.  

The Romantic piano music of Chopin opened what was to be an awe-inspiring schedule, before the dramatic orchestral music of Bernstein bellowed through the stalls. The audience was then introduced to the contemporary clarinet music of British composer, Gerald Finzi, before enjoying performances of pop and traditional folk music, which concluded the successful spectacle. 

The concert was a fitting farewell for our talented Upper Sixth musicians, and we wish them every success as they embark on the next chapter of their lives.
