This year's Spring Music Concert at John Kyrle High School and Sixth Form Centre took place on Wednesday and was extremely well attended. Beginning with a medley of overtures by many composers, performed by the school's Training Concert Orchestra a variety of music was performed throughout, ranging from flute and clarinet solos to heavier rock music.

The concert was compéred by teacher, Mr. Ben Abbott, whose great sense of humour kept the large audience entertained whilst the various performers were setting up.

The staff and pupils at the John Kyrle High School, some of whom wrote arrangements for the music, put in a lot of hard work to ensure an excellent concert is performed to their audience, who were not disappointed. They enjoyed listening to pieces from a diverse range of composers, including Hasse, Piazzolla, Lloyd-Webber, Sir Elton John, Lennon and McCartney, ABBA, Free and many more.

This dedication to the task did not merely rest with the performers however. Dave Chatwin with the assistance of David Shaw took care of the lighting, the sound was controlled by Mr. Arnold, Max Colvin and Andrew Hembry and the Stage Crew were the BTEC Music Group.

Refreshments were organized by the sixth form Uganda Committee and their proceeds will go towards the trip to Uganda in the summer. A wonderful evening was had by all.
