Juniors Surrey Schools’ Concert

On Sunday 8 March, seven selected members of the Junior School Music Department represented the school at the annual Surrey Schools’ Concert at St. John’s School in Leatherhead, in aid of the Children’s Trust. Ella on flute, Lara on oboe and violin, Áhaana on clarinet, Tallulah on trumpet, Alexa on percussion, and Meenakshi and Jorjah on violins played a suite of songs from the American Civil war entitled ‘The Blue and the Gray’, finishing with the rousing ’Battle Hymn of the Republic’. We were chosen to open the concert and Jorjah gave a short introductory speech to our performance. The girls were joined by some very impressive groups from other schools, but we were the only large instrumental ensemble at the concert.

The Croydon High Orchestra members were not only superb performers but great ambassadors for the school, even helping out another school who needed to borrow an instrument. Well done to all the girls!
