Although it all seems like a long time ago now, at the end of last term everyone was very excited about Christmas!
The Music department led the celebrations with 2 superb concerts. Our formal carol service was held in Truro Methodist Church and included performances from Terpsichore, the school recorder group, and our 4 wonderful choirs - The Chamber Choir, the whole school choir, Changing Voices and our Year 7 Choir. They all delighted an audience of family members and staff and, with the congregation contributing by singing well know carols between performances, everyone left the church reminded of the things that we love about Christmas.
This event was followed by an informal carol service held in school which featured solo performances from Ella Hadfield, Amy Kimpton, Adam Hawkes and Ben Keast, along with ensemble performances from the RLS Jazz Band, world music ensembles including Samba, Djembe and Gamelan performances, the Woodwind Group and Trio, Changing Voices, the School Production Band, Taverner Choir, the Chamber Choir, RLS String Group the Year 7 Choir!! To add to this outstanding display of talent the audience were invited to participate in sing-a-long carols and a finale performance of ‘I wish it could be Christmas everyday!’ Ms Jones and Mrs Whomersley worked incredibly hard to enthuse and support students of all musical interests last term and the results of this were seen in these wonderful events.
‘Changing Voices’ - our all male choir - were particularly busy over the festive period, as they also spent Tuesday 13th December, visiting Amberley House Residential Home to perform Christmas songs to the residents there. They were incredibly well received and brought smiles to all the resident’s faces.
