We witnessed many stunning performances today:
Mega Choir sang a song in Swahili for our Kenyan visitors and they LOVED it! They also sang Raise My Voice, Believe and Butterfly - demonstrating their abilities to sing in harmony.
Orchestra were in fine form - in fine tune and fine time as they performed a tango, a waltz, Somewhere Only We Know and Concerning Hobbits (from Lord of the Rings).
We were also treated to some solo performances from some of the members of the orchestra: Alisha, Ewan, Anna, Belle, Raffi and Madeleine.
Today's concerts finished with performances from the two winning bands from Battle of the Bands 2014. Sadly, Lucas was unwell and unable to perform so The (remaining) Outlaws pulled it together for a rocking performance of their song 'Rage' with Ido on piano, Stan on drums, Mackenzie on bass and Jyoti and Liam on vocals. Then the concert closed with I.N.C. performing Imagine Dragons' 'Radioactive' - Hamish on bass and Stan and Eva on guitar and vocals.
Well done everyone - your hard work and dedication this year more that paid off in the concerts -
Miss Rusbatch was invited to attend the Royal Gala at the Rose Theatre, Kingston on Friday night. The event officially opens the International Youth Arts Festival and Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex was there. It was a great evening of music, drama, dance and poetry and the theatre and its cafe look wonderful. We'll all be there on 23rd July!
Bravo 4W and 4R - you entertained the audiences yesterday during your ukulele concerts. Your rendition of Hound Dog was particularly memorable!
Thank you very much to the children and their families who attended the school's summer fair on Saturday. We witnessed super performances from some of the members of the school orchestra, the mega choir, the Albatross cast and the top 3 bands from the Battle of the Bands 2014. Well done everyone. The musicians who were providing the music for the barn dance were REALLY impressed with your performances and wanted me to pass on their feedback.
