Autumn Term Music Concert

Estelle Benson | 5 December 2023

A simply sensational evening of music at Friday’s Autumn Term Concert, showcasing LWC’s Music department at its very best!


Guests were welcomed into the Gavin Hall by a group of fantastic saxophonists, who braved the icy temperatures to start the evening off with some festive jingles! With a line up bursting with an incredible array of talent, we heard stunning solos from pupils across the year groups. There were perfect performances from brass, string and flute ensembles who wowed us with some Handel and Christmas classics. Concert Band brought more festive spirit with a wonderful rendition of George Michael’s ‘Last Christmas’ and ‘Step into Christmas’ by Elton John. The Choir charmed us with their excerpt from Oliver! ahead of our performances at The Haymarket in January.


Special thanks must go to Mr Parker, our Director of Music for sprinkling his magic on this event! Thanks also to our peripatetic music staff especially Sue Noithip, Aussie Pepper and Kathryn Shaw. Last but definitely not least, thanks to Mike Sene and our superb Tech Crew.
