RNCM Anniversary Concert

Our Director of Music, Mrs Madden, tells us all about our outstanding concert at the RNCM that took place in the week before the Easter break:
“On 30th March, we were thrilled to present Trinity’s first Anniversary Concert at the Royal Northern College of Music since 2019…and it was well worth the wait! We celebrated the talents of 220 musicians and singers to a sell-out audience of 500 in the main concert hall – an absolutely unprecedented number!

The evening opened with a prayer from our esteemed guest, The Rt Revd David Walker, Bishop of Manchester. We also thank Cllr and Mrs Judge, the Lord and Lady Mayoress of Manchester, Mrs Atiha Chaudry, Deputy Lieutenant, as well as representatives from our governing body and local partners including One Education and RNCM, for their attendance and support for the progress of our musical children. Thanks must also go to the peripatetic music team who have guided and encouraged their pupils to achieve such high standards.

The atmosphere of the concert was a fantastic blend of diversity, inclusivity, excellence, joy, gratitude and blessing. We were amazed by the variety of genres, from Baroque and Romantic Orchestral and String music to joyful Steel Pans, from the inspiration of our Gospel Choir, to the enthusiastic pop singing and dance moves of the Year 7 Singing Group, from the impressive jazz vibe of our Stage Band with their virtuosic improvisations, to the largest guitar ensemble (we think!) any school has ever seen, serenading us with traditional Spanish tunes as well as The Beatles. Our smaller instrumental ensembles demonstrated their confidence and expertise with a range of entertaining pieces, and it was so encouraging to see the progression from beginners in Year 7 right through to our expert Year 13s, who were given a special award for their contribution to music through the years, along with certificates for the Year 11s.

We ended the whole evening with an emotional performance by the Senior Choir of ‘You Will Be Found’ from the musical Dear Evan Hansen, accompanied by band and featuring Year 11 soloists, reminding us that when we look out for each other, be kind and work together, everything will be alright…the perfect message at the end of an uplifting and joyous occasion. Congratulations to all who performed.”

Here are some example of the very kind feedback we have received about the concert from our community:

What an absolute pleasure it was to come to your concert tonight. Hands down the best school concert I've been to!
Thank you Trinity High Music for the absolute best night of music at RNCM. Well done to everyone involved.
Wow! What an atmosphere. So much energy and cheer at Trinity High Anniversary Concert. You always rock! It was a spectacular musical night.
After two years of not being able to do these sorts of events, perhaps the most encouraging thing was to see the enjoyment on the faces of the children seeing one another perform so well and achieve so much.
