I absolutely love our Tea Concert series! It was started by Mr Foster about twenty years ago and gives anyone in the School the opportunity to perform anything they like in a semi-informal setting to an audience who are enjoying a cup of tea and a biscuit.
We usually have three or four Tea Concert dates in the calendar each term and we often have to split into multiple venues to cater for the numbers of performers who want to take part. We decided this term to keep one of our Tea Concert dates – the last in the term – to stream any remote performances that hadn’t yet appeared elsewhere and the response from our musicians was amazing! It was quickly obvious that we would need two concerts and so here we are: put the kettle on, get the biscuit tin out and enjoy an array of solos and ensembles, traditional and contemporary music, students from the Junior department to the Upper Sixth (even a few Old Girls!) and two concerts which sum up the inspirational way that our students have embraced remote learning, and kept calm and carried on. Thank you to each and every one of them.
