Sevenoaks Festival & Junior Concert
21st June 2016

Congratulations to our Somerhill Chamber Choir and Brass Group on winning their classes at the Sevenoaks Three Arts Festival.

Our Chamber Choir sang a set piece (Earth, Sea and Sky by Lyn Marsh) and an 'own choice' piece (I feel the Spirit by Don Besig). Walthamstow Hall, Hilden Grange and Amherst Primary also sang the set piece and their own choice of second piece in the "Junior 11 years and under" class. Our choir was awarded a Distinction and winner of this class, with the judges commenting on Somerhill's energised performance and excellent control of dynamics and pitch.

In the "Junior orchestras aged 13 and under", our Brass group were awarded 93 points (that's high!) for their rendition of "Highland Farewell" and "When the Saints Go Marching In". They were delighted to go on to win the cup for the top mark in the woodwind, brass and strings orchestral categories!

Well done to our Brass Group: Milly, Mattie, Lottie, Clemmie, Gemma, Emma, Lara, Tia, Cerys, Lily, Douglas, Adam, Edward, Will, Kit, Freddie, Luke, James & Will

...and to our Chamber Choir: Charlotte, Thea, Mattie, Gemma, Imogen, Eloise, Lottie, Isobel, Olivia, Isabelle, Imogen, Alicia, Harriet, Elsa, Clemmie, Sara, Kitty, Aiko, Imogen, Mimi, Edward, Luke, Seb, Toby, Louis, Marcus, Toby, Oisin, Arya & Harrison.

With a big Thank You to Mrs Hillyar and Mrs Jeffrey. Please read on for more music news...

Success at Sevenoaks followed a wonderful Junior Summer Concert, with 213 Somerhill pupils from Years 2, 3 and 4 singing with perfect pitch and cheeky grins as they recounted the tale of a maid and her soldier. They "stole our hearts away" with their individual school choirs, combined choir, brass group and strings group as well as a very entertaining medley of percussion from the Year 2 Instrumental group. A special mention goes to James, our youngest instrumentalist in the concert, from SPP Year 1. We are looking forward to the Senior Summer concert on Thursday.
