Truro School pupils perform musical extravaganza
7:00am Friday 19th October 2012 in Cornwall
Truro School and Truro School Prep held a musical extravaganza on Wednesday to celebrate and showcase their talents.
Guests this year were taken on a trip through the animal kingdom at the event at Hall for Cornwall.
The show involved over 300 pupils, who ranged in age from 7 years old from Truro School Prep, through to 18 years of age in the Senior School.
A variety of styles of music were celebrated with a range of instruments - from Bach to Jazz, Black Eyed Peas to Michael Jackson, blockbuster theme tunes to nursery rhymes. Many performances had an animal link and showcased the children - from groups to choirs, barbershops to soloists.
Martin Palmer, director of music orchestrated the event with the support of the 30 music teachers from both schools.
He the event is not only popular with the audiences but vital for the children taking part, adding: “We hold this event once a year in the biggest venue possible so that families and friends of Truro School can experience the high standard and diversity of music making in the school.”
Parents of pupils attended, as well as friends, extended family and members of the local community. Each performance was wildly different, with many exploring the animal theme.
The evening was a huge success with the performers and audience, and a great start to the new academic year.
