Music & Cabaret

Cabaret (11)

As always, the musical life of the school has been rich and varied this year. Congratulations to all our pupils and staff for everything they have achieved.

There have been many highlights, including our Autumn Concert, the annual House Sing, Evensong at Durham Cathedral our annual Christmas Concert

The Easter term began with a live broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and continued with the Whole School Foundation Concert, the Senior Music Festival and Evensong at St Paul's Cathedral.

Although we missed our annual concert in York Minster, we have enjoyed three fabulous 6-2-7 Concerts during the Summer Term. Thank you to the pupils and staff in the Music Department for producing these concerts for everyone to enjoy online. 

Music has a unique way of bringing people together, and our pupils have remained connected through the power of music this term. Across the three schools at St Peter's, almost 200 children have continued to practice their skills, with over 1,900 music lessons delivered virtually this term.  

Ten of our older pupils achieved Grade 8 in their ABRSM exams this year, along with two ARSM diplomas at distinction. Special mentions go to Tim Burgess, who will be leaving St Peter's with diplomas at distinction on saxophone and flute as well as Grade 8 in singing, and Will Miles-Kingston, who was awarded the title of BBC Young Chorister of the Year in December 2019.

Virtual Cabaret

Our virtual Cabaret is the perfect way to celebrate this year's musical achievements. Our Upper Sixth have worked incredibly hard to bring this together and there are some superb musical numbers for you to enjoy. 

This is going to be a very different Cabaret. It has been made possible thanks to a lot of hard work and dedication from the U6 pupils who have contributed items, and from the other pupils who have supported them.

Mr Miles-Kingston

The concert is about an hour long and features soloists as well as both the girls' and boys' barbershops. Congratulations to all pupils and staff who have worked together on this fantastic production. We hope you enjoy the concert!
