Musical Highlights

Monday 11th April 2016

The Queen Anne’s Music department have once again enjoyed another action-packed Lent Term and as we look forward to the summer term, find out more about our girls’ spectacular performances at the “Night at the Musicals” event in February and their half-term music tour to Seville and Córdoba.

Night at the Musicals Review

On Friday 5 February, London’s West End came to Queen Anne’s in the form of the much-awaited “Night at the Musicals”, featuring performances from girls and staff. This has become an annual event at Queen Anne’s and helped to raise funds for the forthcoming Music Tour to Seville and Córdoba.

All those who saw the show were impressed by the level of professionalism shown by the performers and the enjoyment and entertainment that the evening provided. Shows that featured included Chicago, Hairspray and Cats. The girls worked tirelessly during rehearsals under the direction and leadership of Mrs Kench and Miss Pratt.

Particular thanks go to Mrs Richards for organising the table decorations, raffle and silent auction and to the catering staff for the exquisite food that contributed to a memorable evening.

Half-Term Music Tour to Seville and Córdoba

During February Half-Term, 30 girls and 8 members of staff jetted off for an action-packed music tour of Seville and Córdoba. The girls worked well as a team throughout the tour and were incredibly supportive of one another; this showed in the quality of their performing and helped to deliver very high standards of music making. Particular highlights included performing in the Iglesia de Santo Angelo and the Iglesia de la Magdalena, Córdoba.

Although it was a busy tour musically, there was ample time to explore some of the culture and history of Seville, Córdoba and Jerez. The girls had the opportunity to visit the Real Alcazar (Royal Palace) in Seville and the Mesquita-Cathedral (Mosque-Cathedral) in Córdoba.

Ensembles that performed included the Chamber Choir, Chamber Orchestra and Saxability as well as a range of instrumental and vocal soloists. Particular thanks must go to Mr Burnett, Miss Borzone, Mrs Bilic and Mr Haysted for their support and good humour during the tour.
