Harrow Bangkok’s Concerto Concert this week was one of fond farewells, as the school enjoyed the last concert in the current Music Department.
The audience revelled in two delightful mini concertos accompanied by the Senior School Orchestra, one for Violin (Miki in Year 13) and the other for the Guzheng (Pao Pao in Year 11).
Miki made the Violin Concerto No 22 in A Minor by Violitti come alive with her highly accomplished mastery of this instrument. Pao Pao’s performance on Guzheng, Dance of the Yao, was all the more impressive as he created the arrangement himself. Director of Music Christopher Johnson paid tribute to these two exceptionally talented students who are moving on from Harrow Bangkok this year.
This was also our last official concert in the Mini Theatre before moving into our brand new Creative and Performing Arts Centre.
This new centre, opening for the new academic year, marks a major milestone in the school’s extensive HBuild campus redevelopment project. Situated in the heart of the school, it accommodates a range of state-of-the-art facilities for the teaching of Art, Music and Drama, as well as the new Design and Technology Department.
Just as our educational and pastoral programmes are continuously being improved, so are our facilities. All of our community is benefitting from our outstanding, 21st-century appropriate campus.Mr Michael Farley, Head Master
