Welcome to our Spring Concert. It has been wonderful to have the girls back in School and to be able to make live music again. During lockdown rehearsals took place at the same time as normal, with all ensembles and choirs singing and playing, by themselves, to backing tracks. They were muted of course, but the visual effect was great. The girls came back to School having practised hard and settled with amazing skill and energy into live performance once more. Our Spring Concert is the result of all that work, and I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making these recordings. You will also find a full selection of photos in the Photo Gallery.
I would like to pay tribute to all the coaches and conductors who have worked so hard during lockdown to maintain the quality of musical performance at Godolphin. It has been an enormous amount of work but worth every minute when you see just how committed our students are. I would also like to thank Melody Lewis, the Marketing department and Ash Mills for lending us all their technical skill in recording and editing this performance.
