Our Performing Arts Department has been incredibly busy this week, showcasing the results of a term of hard work, both at home and now back at school.
Although we were unable to host our usual in person end of term concert, our parents did not miss out on the opportunity to enjoy the extraordinary talent of our pupils.
There was nothing “half so much worth doing as messing around in boats” for our Year 6 pupils. Our parents were treated to an outstanding recorded production of The Wind in the Willows put on by the entire Year Group. Against the backdrop of a fabulous set, our audiences (Mr Perry live, and our parents at home) were entertained from start to finish. You can read Mr Ford’s review of the production here.
Our Performing Arts Centre (DJC) was a hive of activity as the performers put together a concert for our parents to enjoy at home. Featuring our Lambrook School Choirs, ensembles and even some soloists, this was an online event not to be missed!
Year 5 sang ‘I am the Earth’ alongside footage of the pupils taking part in various environmental activities.
It was all about the outdoors for our Year 6 who sang ‘aint no mountain high enough’
We also had some fantastic performances from our Year 8 Band performing ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’ and some individual Upper School soloists.
This week our dancers received the results of their fantastic entries into our annual Choreography Competition. Dancing at Lambrook is incredibly popular and in our purpose designed dance studio, under the most excellent instruction of Miss Lister, our pupils enjoy ballet, modern dance and advanced ballet lessons. During our time of Remote Learning at home, many of our pupils looked to showcase their dancing skills in our annual Choreography competition.
It was a tough competition to judge, as our adjudicator, Mrs Laura Michie, former Head of Children’s Ballet at Laine Theatre Arts Performers College explained, “I really loved watching all of the entries to the competition and seeing all the effort and thought that had gone into every single dance. However, I did have to pick some winners and there really were some outstanding performances.”
Mrs Michie was extremely impressed with the detail of the filming, the thought that went into the costumes and styling, detailed choreography and the excellent interpretation of the genres chosen. Congratulations to all of the winners and runners up.Back to all news
