Royal Albert Hall PerformancePosted on: May 3rd 2018
The musical excellence of Amery Hill School students has once again been on show when they joined forces with more than 1,700 young people and performed at the Royal Albert Hall on St George’s Day. The school has played a key role in
co-ordinating elements of the concert, along with colleagues from the Hampshire Music Service. The Hampshire at the Hall event was a celebration of the musical achievements of Hampshire schools and the Hampshire Music Service’s orchestras and ensembles and included a performance of a massed choir made up from pupils from some of the 200 schools involved.
Talking about the school’s involvement, Mrs Debra Mulligan, Amery Hill School’s Lead Teacher for the event said “Amery Hill students formed part of the massed Samba Band of 250 pupils from across Hampshire, as well as performing as members of The Hampshire County Youth Orchestra, the Youth Wind Ensemble, the County Youth Band, Massed Strings and the Youth Choir! It was a wonderful experience to participate in such a prestigious event, rehearsing and performing at such an iconic venue. The mass playing and singing of Land of Hope and Glory in the finale made for a truly memorable occasion for all involved. As we have come to expect, our students were fantastic ambassadors for the school, mentoring the younger players and thoroughly enjoying the experience.”
For many years, Amery Hill School has commanded an unrivalled reputation for excellence in music and has received a number of recent awards which recognise the breadth and quality of opportunities that we offer our students.
