Jingling All the Way to the Christmas Concert

Nov 30, 2023

The Christmas Concert was a magical box of delights as the audience were treated to a selection of festive treats by ensembles and soloists from both Prep and Senior pupils who arrived at the Chapel suitably attired in Christmas jumpers and hats.

Highlights from this wonderful evening included the Senior Clarinet Choir which began proceedings with a programme of three confidently played pieces, followed by a most poignant piece on violin by Sophie Sharp. Prep School Glockenspiel and Brass Ensembles lifted the mood with a rousing rendition of Jingle Bells, as did some songs performed by Mia (First Form, Swift). Caellum (Lower Sixth, Vanbrugh) was featured not once but twice, firstly with his outstanding performance on violin and later in a duet with Nancy (Lower Sixth, Swift) on piano. The Senior Brass Ensemble sprinkled everyone with Christmas cheer with two classics, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer and Jingle Bell Rock. Katy (Third Form, Swift) delighted with her clarinet performance of Feliz Navidad and then it was the turn of Anna (Upper Sixth, Feilden) and Sam (Upper Sixth, Feilden) with their spirited clarinet duet of Jingle Bells Boogie. Prep School Choir concluded the evening with the warm-hearted and powerfully sung That’s Christmas to Me and impressed with their part singing. The Concert was a wonderful way to start all the Christmas events at Cokethorpe and was deemed to be a great success.
