The King Edward’s Spring Music Festival commenced last night with The Holburne Soloists’ Concert, set within the classical backdrop of the Holburne Museum.

Featuring an engaging and inspiring programme of music, showcasing the wealth of talent and dedication shown by our pupils, The Holburne Soloists’ Concert is one of the School’s musical highlights of the year. With a record number of soloists taking part, concert-goers were treated to a wide range of musical styles.  Haydn and Mozart remained firm favourites for some soloists, as did theatrical favourites, including songs from Schönberg’s Les Misérables and Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera. Delibes’ famous Flower Duet rounded off the night.

The School’s Spring Music Festival also includes The Bath Orchestral Gala Concert  (20 March), which continues our long-standing partnership with Bath Philharmonia, showcasing the musical talents of our pupils, performing side-by-side with professional musicians.  This year’s Gala promises to be an evocative evening of orchestral music and readings, marking 100 years since the end of the First World War.  The third and final concert of the Festival  - the KES Ensembles’ Extravaganza Concert (27 March), celebrates the enthusiasm of our ensembles, a fitting finalise to the Festival.
