Music for a Summer's Evening

18th July 2019

Frieth School Choir presented a superb evening of musical delights for the inaugural 'Music for a Summer's Evening' Community Concert at Frieth School. The School choir sang 'This is Me!', ‘Bright Eyes’, ‘Danny Boy’, ‘Swing Thing’ and ‘A whole New World’ beautifully. Performing alongside Frieth Choir were Frieth pupils who performed instrumental solos on the piano and flute; the Frieth Ukulele Group with a medley of hits; and the guitar group performing the Macarena and Riders on Storm!  

We also welcomed performances by parents and returning Frieth pupils playing pieces by Poulenc, Telemann and Bach.  The Frieth choir masters, Mr Green and Mrs Cheung performed Vivaldi’s ‘Laudamus Te’ beautifully accompanied by Dr Pash. The Headteacher Mrs Jo Reid also performed ‘Theme from Schindler’s List’ on violin, accompanied by Mrs S Ingram.  Some snippets of these performances are available on the school website.

Following the event, feedback from the parents was overwhelmingly positive with Mr Richards contacting the school to say;

"What a wonderful night; it was a real treat and I do hope it becomes an annual fixture in the school calendar" 

And The Chair of Governors, Mrs Merelina Tebbot stated;

"A wonderful success for the first event of its kind and the enthusiastic reception by the packed hall was a delight to experience." 

It was such an inspiring and positive evening of musical talent that we look forward to repeating this event next year!
