Summer Chamber Concert 2021

Thirty of our advanced musicians recently recorded a virtual Summer Chamber Concert. Each student’s solo was recorded separately in the Jarvis Room over the course of two days.

The programme is approximately in ‘bubble group’ order; the concert starts with the Year 8s and 9s, followed by Year 10s, then a mix of Year 11s and 12s, ending with Tess in Year 13 singing in her last SWPS concert before becoming a Perkonian herself!

A wide range of styles and composers are presented for your enjoyment and there are piano, violin, cello, flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet and vocal (both classical and music theatre) solos. Details are shown on the screen at the start of each performance.

Many thanks indeed to all our soloists, to Oliver Cuttriss who played their piano accompaniments, Chloe Conquest who videoed and edited the programme and the staff who kindly allowed them to slip out of lessons for their rehearsal/recording sessions.

There was of course no audience during the sessions so please give each performer a big clap in your homes – they deserve it, especially the students making their debut performance!
