The annual Music Award Holders’ Recital took place in Big School on Thursday 10 October. The audience of family, friends and staff enjoyed an eclectic programme which included Mozart, Rossini, Poulenc, Stevie Wonder, and songs from the West End.

In between the concerts, parents of scholars were invited to a buffet supper where they were able to meet members of the Music Department staff.
