Annual Summer Concert brings out the best in talented musicians

A host of gifted musicians and vocalists at Rydal Penrhos took the stage for the annual Summer Concert recently.

The highly anticipated event took place on Thursday, May 4 in-front of a packed out crowd at the Ferguson Centre, which coincided with the school’s Music Week initiative.

Boarding pupil Amy Yue kicked-off the showcase with a stunning portrayal of Bian lian, a magical Chinese SiChuan drama which had the audience mesmerised.

Successful singing duo Arthur Hind and Tegid Goodman-Jones also gave amazing performances, as did the duet of Zahra Shamsi and Sean Hughes, who performed the Rihanna hit Stay.

Sixth form pupils Nick Dundee and Adam Sabri also produced memorable efforts, while Rydal Penrhos’ Community Choir and Jazz Band lent their support to the concert after playing at the community event Creative Rhos.

The Prep School also gave a significant contribution, with Year 5 and 6 performing You Raise Me Up which they rehearsed in-front of Senior School chapel the previous day.

The second half of the concert brought plenty of diversity in the form of Sammy Jones, Miles Poller, Alex Roberts, Juan Rajagopal and Richard Wolfendale, and Head Girl Charlotte Owen put her stunning voice to good use with a rendition of the Radiohead anthem Creep.

The supremely talented Niamh Cook was another performance of note, while Edwards House, the school’s Sixth Form and Senior Choirs performed various songs to close out the show.

Director of Music Pete Williams, said: “It was another fantastic concert and full credit goes to the pupils who gave up their time to both rehearse and perform.

“This is the latest in a series of concerts we put on throughout the year, which give us a great platform to build the confidence of our pupils and showcase the immense talent we have here.”
