Summer Chamber Concert showcases DAOS talent!

Our Summer Chamber Concert on Wednesday 20th June was a stunning evening of musical performances, showcasing the talents of individual pupils, duos, quartets and small ensembles.

The programme was full of musical contrast, challenge and variety, with Haydn, Beethoven and Smetana rubbing shoulders with Barry Manilow, Wes Montgomery and Bob Marley.

There were some breathtaking performances from soloists Dea Peshkepija (voice), Alaina Nwosa (voice), Alex Morgan (accordion), Zoe Antoniou (piano), Jade Brooks (piano) and Hannah Andrusier (voice). The ensembles who performed also played impressively, demonstrating a fantastic level of musicianship.

A huge well done to all pupils who were involved in such a wonderful evening of music, and to all the ensemble directors whose dedication and commitment was so evident – Mr Niesyto, Mr Widden, Mr Kelly, Ms Dodds, Mr Crossley and Mr Bean. Thanks also go to Ms Gill for her accompanying during the evening, and to Mr Grimstead, Ms Jenkins and Ms Meik for all their help in supporting and organising the concert.
