The Middle School Concert

The Middle School Concert, on June 15th, gave pupils in Years 7 to 9 a chance to showcase their musical talents. The standard was high and the range of instruments and styles impressive.

The programme featured some of St Benedict’s many musical ensembles, starting with Wind Band and the James Bond theme. The Guitar Ensemble played Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean, and Thriller was performed by the Clarinet Ensemble. In complete contrast, String Group played  Mozart’s Divertimento No 2 (3rd movement). Finally, the Intermediate and Middle School Percussion groups played Under the sea and Mancini’s Peter Gunn with gusto.
