Beachborough Piano and Strings Concert

Strings and Piano Concert

On Tuesday evening a concert was given by the pupils of Mrs. Rafter (violin), Mrs. Ricardo (cello) and Mr. Smith (piano). There were children in all year groups from Pre-Prep 2 to Form VI performing, some who have been playing for a few years, others who started in September and showed the progress they have made in a short time. There were some superb performances and some which may have left the players feeling they didn’t give a fair reflection of their ability – I can confidently say this has happened to every performer, as live performance comes with intrinsic risk and nerves that musicians only learn to handle with experience. The concert ended with the String Ensemble playing Hunting the Hare. My thanks go to Ben Groom (violin & piano), Alexandra Medina (violin & piano), Jemma Zimmermann, Claudia Kilonback, Ned Goodrich, Harry Atkinson, Lottie Gross, Laura Stephenson, Guy Wilkinson, Larissa Campbell, Georgia Perriss, Inés de la Corte Nelson, Sophie Lee, Isobel Banks, Cameron Eilbeck, Dominic Cox, Sophie Tredwell, Jack Brennan, Emily Stone, Emilia Havard, Groom, Liberty Harris, Finlay Dickerson and James Barker. Report by Tom McCoy
