Junior School Mince Pie Concert
The Junior School parents were treated to a wonderful evening of mince pies and festive music at NHEHS’ Mince Pie Concert this week.
Opening the concert, the Junior School Orchestra performed the Pachelbel Canon, followed by our “Celli Beans” trio of cellists, whose beautiful renditions of “O Come All Ye Faithful” and “Silent Night” were accompanied by the harp.
The Year 6 Strings group comprising violins, violas, cellos, guitars and harps played a lovely variety of pieces, starting with Boots of Shining Leather, through Cossacks to the one of the girls’ favourites, The Sussex Carol.
With some of the Year 3 girls performing for the first time, the Year 3/4/5 Strings group brought us up to date with a fun Open String Samba, followed by “Jingle Bells,” for which Mr McLaughlin enthusiastically drummed up fantastic audience participation!
A charming performance from the Flute Group took us from “Walking In The Air” to a rousing “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” via “The Holly & The Ivy.”
The evening then finished on a high with Handel’s Hallelujah played by the Junior School Orchestra, which certainly put all our parents in the festive spirit!
