The Ensembles Concert on Monday was a clear demonstration of the variety of music performed at RGS. The guitar ensemble began the evening with a beautiful Irish Folk Medley, followed by an arrangement of the ‘Game of Thrones’ theme. Next was a solo performance of Berlioz’s Villanelle by Camille DB, ably accompanied by the string quartet of Anna A, Sophia H, Juliet A and Yasmin H. The clarinet ensemble performed next to their usual high standard, followed by the equally impressive brass ensemble and then recorder ensemble. The saxophone ensemble performed arrangements of ‘Watch Your Step’ and ‘Someone to Watch Over Me’, before the percussion ensemble finished the evening with a somewhat contrasting version of the ‘Game of Thrones’ theme.
The evening showcased the abundant talent at RGS and students across all year groups within the school.
