13th November 2017

Gifted musicians at Rydal Penrhos have been praised for their efforts at a special fundraising concert.

The school held its Remembrance Concert on Saturday, November 11 at St John’s Church, which drew a large crowd and was held in aid of the Royal British Legion.

Kicking off proceedings were the School Choir, who opened with ‘Hold Back the River’, ‘Adiemus’ and ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’, before the Jazz Band performed ‘Oye como Va’ and ‘Cute’.

It was then the turn of Rydal Penrhos’ Community Choir to take the stage and sing ‘Funiculi, Funicula’ and ‘Ticket to Ride’, before piano sensation Juan Rajagopal thrilled the audience with his solo performance of ‘Scriabin Prelude’.

The Prep School Treble Makers also contributed to the concert with an entertaining rendition of ‘Hallelujah’, and the School Orchestra were also on hand to perform ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King’ and ‘Mozart Horn Concerto’.

Talented vocalists Zhara Shamsi and Tegid Goodman-Jones also caught the eye with their respective efforts, and the event concluded with a joint performance from the School and Community Choir of ‘I Feel Fine’.

Director of Music Pete Williams, said: “It was another fantastic concert and I absolutely thrilled with the turnout.

“We have so much musical talent here at Rydal Penrhos, and they once again gave up their own time to raise what will hopefully be a significant amount for a very worthy cause in the Royal British Legion.

“I would like to thank everyone that attended and to the Community Choir who continued to show how vital they are the school and events such as this.”
