Summer Music Concert 2018
Students brought the beach to Falmouth School for one night only, as they put together a superb show at the Summer Music Concert. As ever, there was a diverse range of students in years 7 through to 13 as well as students from local primary schools. It was fantastic to see such a big crowd with the fine weather Falmouth has had this week, with compere Will Daniell introducing the action packed evening. The Lower School Choir kicked things off with ‘Count On Me’ by Bruno Mars and ‘Counting Stars’ by One Republic.
Marcia Hammond was up next with her rendition of ‘Never Enough’ from the hit musical The Greatest Showman, followed by a fantastic piece from the Brass Group led by Sara Munns. Jordan Lanyon performed in his last concert before heading to university, with a superb guitar solo to Hank Marvin’s ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’. Josh Talbot and Tadhg Cullen, who also go on to university in September, have been in every Music Concert since joining the school seven years ago and put in a final performance of ‘Victoria’ by The Kinks and as part of the Boys Choir.
Lewis Naisby performed a stunning Rachmaninov piece on the piano, before a laid back version of Corrine Bailey Rae’s ‘Put Your Records On’ from Maddie Brown. The rock bands were up next, raising the tempo and the noise levels! Year 7’s ‘Quality Control’ performed ‘Seven Nation Army’, with Year 9 band ‘Magpie’ putting their spin on ‘Live and Let Die’. Head Boy Sennen Addinall slowed things back down with a stripped back version of Childish Gambino’s ‘Redbone’.
The choirs were up next, performing Sia’s ‘Titanium’ and ‘September’ by Earth, Wind and Fire. Next up was the big moment for the primary school students, who played the Star Wars theme and ‘Flora Dance’, before being joined by the Jazz Band to play the ‘C Jam Blues’ and Herbie Hancocks ‘Cantaloupe Island’. The Jazz Band continued on with their version of ‘Hit the Road Jack’, before Abiah Wyatt brought the night to a close with a lovely version of Sting’s ‘Fields of Gold’.
It was a fantastic night, with all students showcasing their exceptional talents. Head of Music at Falmouth School, Matt Fox said “It was a fantastic concert. It just shows the talent we have at the school. We would like to thank everyone who came to support the students despite the fine weather and the football World Cup. We look forward to welcoming everyone back next time.”
