WHGS Summer Concert
/ Categories: News
Wednesday 6 July 2022
For the first time in three years, the Music Department hosted a wonderful Summer Concert in the Great Hall to a very supportive audience of parents, students, friends and staff.
The evening began with the fabulous Steel Band playing Quando Quando and continued with soloists, including Yousef, Fatima and our very own award-winning Eden-Haya. In addition, we had three Rock Bands in Year 7, 10 and 11 perform hits, such as 'Smells Like Teen Spirit', 'Highway to Hell' and some ABBA tunes. The KS3 Choir also gave their own tribute to rock music singing a challenging Queen Tribute medley, which was extremely well-received. The Ukulele Orchestra, Keyboard Club and KS2 Primary Choir also performed.
The evening felt like a celebratory moment, post pandemic, where all ensembles were featured in the Great Hall. The evening finished with the All-Stars Cuban Band and their renditions of 'I Wish', 'Never Too Much' and 'Fly As Me'. With the crowd wanting more and a standing ovation, an encore of 'Master Blaster' got everyone on their feet clapping along.
It was commented on by staff and the community alike about the quality and the standard of performance.
Thank you to Mr Mullholand for his kind words. Well done to all staff and students involved and thank you for everyone's efforts for making this live event come together. We wish our Year 11s the best of luck and particularly to those performing at Band on The Wall on Saturday.
