Woodbridge School Christmas Concert 2023

8 Dec 23

St Mary’s Church was filled with musical delights on Wednesday evening, as we hosted our annual Christmas Concert.

The concert was opened with Percussion Ensemble playing Mission Impossible, to be followed by the serene sounds of Lilanna playing a harp solo of Interlude from Ceremony of Carols. The evening progressed with music from our Harp Ensemble and Single-Reeds, to Chamber Orchestra and Concert Band. The sounds were diverse, familiar, and extremely enjoyable.

Symphony Orchestra opened the second half with Slavonic Dance No.8, to be followed by our first Sixth Form Rock Band, who performed the familiar Zombie by The Cranberries. The fast-paced tunes continued; Brass Ensemble took to the stage.

Seckford Strings playing Canon in D were an absolute delight, and those eight repetitive notes were timed to perfection. Cellisti stepped it up a notch with Love Theme from The Godfather and Smells Like Teen Spirit; who’d have thought Nirvana would be played by a string ensemble in a Church – it was absolutely amazing!

The evening was closed with Swing Band playing Senorita and Gotcha, and the pièce de resistance was a surprise number, Feliz Navidad.

An extremely enthusiastic well done to everyone involved, the students were incredible, and to the various Peripatetic Music Teachers – thank you for your time and dedication to our students.
