Six keen Test Valley musicians took part in the Clatford School’s annual ‘Music Afternoon’. The performances were interspersed with a range of performances from the Clatford pupils and all of our pupils were exemplary in demonstrating their enthusiasm and talent. Their performances highlighted the benefits of being involved in extra-curricular music. Year 7 pupil, Marcus Brown, led with an accomplished piano solo performance from Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, followed by a confident trumpet performance of ‘All That Jazz’ by Benjamin Harrison, also Year 7. Ruby Robinson, the first of our singers, then gave a really moving performance of ‘Say Something’, followed by Rosie Weatherall (Year 9) performing her own original song, ‘I Messed Up’. This original song showcased the skills Year 9 have learnt during their recent song-writing project. Jennifer Skubij Palmer (Year 7) delivered a powerful rendition of ‘Rise Up’ and our acts concluded with a really stylish and interactive performance by Angus Bone and Marcus Brown. It was also wonderful for our pupils to see a performance by Matilda Murphy (also an ex-pupil of Clatford School) who has continued to flourish through her love of musical theatre. A huge well done to all pupils involved!
