Tuesday, 1 October, saw the first visit of this academic year from the Henshaws Society. As usual, members were provided with a tasty buffet lunch and some scintillating conversation from Sixth Form volunteers - all followed by a lunchtime variety concert.
Despite most clubs only having had 3 weeks to rehearse, over 30 pupils from Years 7, 8 and 9 volunteered to perform.
The concert opened with The Grace Notes Choir, who sung a version of 'Hallelujah' (originally by Leonard Cohen). Then came our first solo vocalist - Leena from Year 7, who performed 'Circle of Life' from the Year 6 Summer Show The Lion King.
Next came the Junk Orchestra - performing a composition formulated in the weekly rehearsals. The fact that this was played on an array of old pots, pans and dustbins brought much amusement to the audience - although they were very impressed with the resulting rhythms!
The Gospel Choir then sung 'Royals' by Lorde, followed by the Ukulele Orchestra who gave a great rendition of George Ezra's 'Shotgun'.
All in all - it was a wonderful concert that was greatly received by those who attended - so yet again, a big thank you to our wonderful WHGS musicians.
