The Autumn Music Concert last night provided an evening of music and dance featuring a range of acts from the haunting performance of the Chamber Choir singing a musical setting of Yeats’ The Lake Isle of Innisfree accompanied by Faith Jenkinson’s oboe solo, to the rousing beat of Rebecca Dowey’s bagpipes.
PC’s musicians demonstrated their class and expertise, exemplifying musical excellence from Ellen Mullen’s ‘Summertime’ on the cornet to the string quartet’s technically demanding ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, featuring Amy Boyce, Luci Mullan, Samuel Kane and Peter Thompson.
Special tribute must be made to past pupil James Cunningham for his composition of ‘PC Overture’, performed by the College Orchestra.
A highlight of the evening was PC’s own a cappella group of sixth year girls (accompanied by Ryan Adair’s beat boxing) performing Bellas Finals from Pitch Perfect, worthy would be competitors in Gareth Malone’s ‘Naked Choir’!
Thanks to Mrs Doogan for another feast of music at PC.
