One of the joys of a school such as Inst is its ever popular Music Department. Responsible for hosting some of the most anticipated events in the school calendar, these spectacular performances represent the best and brightest of the school’s musical talent.
The most important event of the academic year is the Spring Concert, which involves a Choir of 130 boys alongside a large Orchestra and Jazz band made up entirely of current pupils of the school. This event has become renowned for its eclectic mix of exciting and intriguing items performed to the highest standard.
This year’s performance included choral and orchestral works by Berlioz, Holst and Prokofiev, alongside a variety of contemporary pieces in popular styles from big band jazz to Pink Floyd. The concert, as always, played to a full audience and standing ovations on both nights. The principal, Miss Williamson said, “A wonderful evening, with over 200 boys enjoying music to the highest level.”
