Gig Night is always a popular event, offering our talented musicians and performers the chance to perform music of their choosing. The result is always a wonderful night of music showcasing an array of different styles and genres. The evening included performances from across the Senior School, including members of staff, with instruments ranging from jazz clarinet and piano to vocal performances and an electric violin. The event was organised by Grace (Upper Sixth, Gascoigne) and Sam (Upper Sixth, Feilden) with the support of a group of Upper Sixth students to help run the evening.
The event was held in support of a music therapy charity: Nordoff and Robbins. The charity provides one-to-one and group sessions where individuals can grow and express themselves with the support of a music therapist. The event raised £654 for Nordoff and Robbins, which will provide music therapy in organisations such as schools, care homes, hospices and hospitals.
The event was enjoyed by all who attended and there are hopes of more Gig Nights to come later this academic year.
