Meet Year 11’s Jasmine from Our Gala Performance

17 Jun 22

Rehearsals continue a pace for our annual Gala Concert, which takes place on Sunday 26 June at Ipswich Corn Exchange, with over 130 performers (including our parent choir) coming together to perform Faure’s sublime Requiem!     

As we look ahead to this spectacular event, we met with Year 11’s Jasmine whose composition, ‘Ben Aan’, will be performed at the concert, it is a piece she was commissioned to compose especially for the occasion.  

“The brief was to compose a piece of music that could be performed at the Gala Concert; to be played with a full orchestra and with a Scottish theme to compliment Hamish McCunn’s ‘Land of Mountain and Flood’ which will open proceedings at next Sunday’s concert.  It was a huge challenge, but one I’ve been excited to take on.  I will be also be performing in the piece  on cello, it begins one might say with a rather sinister and dark feeling, but develops into a fun jig that then culminates in a combination of the two.  Although I’m a little nervous, I can’t wait to play it.”   

Jasmine plays cello, piano and sings at School as well as being a cellist in the Suffolk Youth Orchestra.   She will be playing cello throughout the Gala Concert, and is excited to be playing to such a big audience in such a beautiful space.  

The Gala Concert is certain to be a wonderful night, and our Director of Music Mrs Emma Kent will be conducting throughout.  Tickets are now selling fast and we hope you can join us. Tickets are available directly from the Corn Exchange Ipswich by clicking here.
