Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School Horncastle

Girls' Choir

As part of the Horncastle music and arts festival at St Mary's church, the music department organised a lunchtime concert.  The programme included a wide variety of musical genres and styles, soloists and ensembles.  The Girls' Choir started the concert with an African song, Siyahamba, sung in 3 parts a capella.  Oliver Jones, Isaac Keeling and Patrick Fox all played piano solos, and Nell Glenn sang, accompanying herself on the guitar.  Emma Sintim played an electric guitar solo from her grade 8 repertoire.  A group of students from 8SR performed their own composition, a drumming piece they had created as part of their Year 8 lessons on African music.  The string ensemble took part with the Whirligig Suite and the girls' choir concluded the programme with Run by Snow Patrol.  The concert was well-received by the audience and provided another exciting opportunity for students to experience live music.
