Summer Music Festival

The TPS Summer Music Festival was a great success on Friday as we saw all our talented musicians and singers take to the stages. There was a great festival vibe and the Pimms was flowing nicely!

The main stage on the bandstand saw TPS ensembles: Wind Band, Brass Band, House Band and Jazz Band perform pieces they have been working on during the term. Our Year 8, 9 and 10 student bands also performed hit songs, including Someone you Loved, Baggy Trousers, Don’t Look Back in Anger, Rockin’ All Over the World, and Friday I’m in Love- sung by The Cure recently on the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury.

The acoustic stage in the Studio had a more chilled atmosphere and saw student solo performers, including Emilia Quinn, Charlie Palmer, Francesca Cox, Nina Vennis, Oliver Patient, Fleur Ash, Mia Palmer and Tor Richardson playing both originals and covers.  String Ensemble performed a number of pieces including a Beatles medley and Scott Joplin’s The Entertainer. The TPS A Capella singers sang Elvis’s Can’t Help Falling in Love, and the Choir sang an expressive rendition of Shallow from A Star is Born.

The evening concluded with a big finale of Strings, Wind Band, House Band and Choir performing One Day Like This.

Head of Music, Samantha Wood, said, “The Music Festival was a brilliant celebration of the talent we have at TPS, and the hard work students put into rehearsals throughout the year. Thank you to our brilliant team of peripatetic specialists who help and inspire our students to achieve their potential on their instruments, and thank you to parents for all your support with music events throughout the year.”
