Garden’s super-talented musicians impressed a packed audience with their Spring Concert.

The GIS Spring Concert and Ceilidh was held in the main hall and began with the school choir singing HM’s the King’s Anthem, followed by a performance by the Yr 10 IGCSE Music group of ‘Soul Limbo’ (better known as the BBC’s cricket theme). After the orchestra performed a Basse Dance and Gopak, the flute group staged an intricate jazz medley.

Several Yr 7s then played ‘Water Come To Me Eye’, and then the school’s jazz band made their debut with ‘Town With an Ocean View’.

The popular ukulele band played an impressive three-chord megamix of songs from different decades, and then the Yr 8 group reminded everyone of the school’s sell-out musical Mama Mia, with their version of Super Trouper, which was sung by Praw.

The first half ended with the choir returning to the stage for two more songs – Lullaby and Cee Lo Green’s hit Forget You.

After the break, the hall was transformed into a dance room. The Ceilidh Band then led several traditional dances, with senior students stepping in with several performances to give dancers a well-earned rest.

Well done to the Music Department, the performers and everyone who helped make the evening such a success.
