Barber concert at the Elgar Concert Hall
On Friday 18 November, we hosted our annual Lunchtime Recital held in the Elgar
Concert Hall at the University of Birmingham, as part of their Barber Concert series.
This concert celebrated some of our accomplished musicians from both KEHS and KES.
The concert began with a mixed piano quintet, featuring Jennifer (violin) and
Rebecca (piano) from KEHS. The quintet gave an outstanding and elegant
performance of Frank Bridge’s Piano Quintet in D Minor, H.49. This was followed by a
vocal performance, with string quartet, of Barber’s ‘Dover Beach’, which featured
Emmy for KEHS on the violin. All students gave a touching performance of the
piece. To bring the concert to a close, a mixed sextet, comprising of a wind quintet and
piano, performed the first movement, Allegro vivace, from Poulenc’s Sextour, Fp.100.
From KEHS, Jiajie (flute), Shalu (oboe), and Rosie (clarinet) all
played wonderfully in this ensemble. The audience seemed to thoroughly enjoy the
event and each performance was met by rapturous applause. All pupils were fantastic
ambassadors for KEHS and should be very proud of their outstanding achievements.
