Gala Music Concert
This year’s Gala Concert was once again a feast for the ears and eyes, with over 300 Trinity boys from Years 3 to 12 performing in a variety of ensembles at the City Recital Hall. The concert opened as has become Trinity tradition, with the Symphonic Wind Band’s blast of brass instruments that continued with the transcendent “O Magnum Misterium” and the delightfully diabolical “Imperial March” from Star Wars.
The élite Sinfonietta Strings ensemble and the young boys of the Combined Primary Choirs touched our hearts with pieces by Edvard Grieg and the sweet “Can You Hear Me?” by Bob Chilcott.
A highlight of the evening included beautiful solos from our Music Co-Captains Brian Kim 12WH (on flute) and Tom Hallworth 12WJ (voice, in Vivaldi’s famous Gloria, sung by the massed Choir and Academy Orchestra). Snappy grooves from the Big Band and a finale of three exciting orchestral pieces from the Symphony Orchestra rounded out the concert in spectacular style.
As the last Gala Concert for our Head Master Mr Cujes, the concert was dedicated to Mr and Mrs Cujes’ 21 years of service to our great School. This year’s concert sold out at record speed and has become an event not to be missed!
The event is held annually in June.
