Spring Concert at Turner Sims

On 9th March the second of this term’s spring concerts was held at Turner Sims, Southampton University and showcased over 100 of the School’s senior musicians in a sparking and varied programme. The Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra, Chamber Choir and Big band were on top form, and a number of chamber groups and soloists complemented. This was also a concert with something new; an accordion player in the Chamber Orchestra’s performance of a Shostakovich Jazz Waltz, a delightful harp solo performed by Ellie Dunlop, a rousing performance by the newly formed Brass Sextet and a team of Fifth Years performing Elliott Cole’s 'Postlude 8' for bowed vibraphone - in darkness! No KES concert would be complete without a glittering finale and this year the solo singers rounded the evening off in great style with a performance of 'Sway' to the accompaniment of combined Big Band, Orchestra and dancers. The concert was brought to a close with exploding streamer cannons and rapturous applause from the full house.
