GLIVE 2024

Another successful GLive!

Every year we are lucky enough to be invited by the Guildford Rotary Club to perform in a joint schools’ concert with three other schools (Prior's Field, Christ's College and, for the first time this year, St. Teresa's) and it is undoubtedly one of the musical highlights of our year. This time we took 115 pupils (record!), and 11 staff to the G Live venue in Guildford, with a 35-minute set ready to go and a table for 121 booked at Zizzi's for the annual pizza! As always, our pupils were outstanding. Their behaviour and professionalism on the stage during the technical rehearsal was excellent, and then in the restaurant they were spirited but respectful, and as always drew positive comments from the staff working both in the theatre and the restaurant.

Our set in the evening was eclectic and entertaining, and I was so proud of our wonderful pupils who rose to the occasion as only they can! They learn so much from the experience. The thrill of performing on a big, professional stage to approximately 1,000 people is something that will stay with them for a long time. Well done to The Ukes of Kent, Stomp, the Junior Chamber Choir, the Senior Choir, the DoK Big Band, Herb and Sonny, Lola, Tildy, Kai and Harris – and all the soloists. And of course, our gorgeous Year 11s as well, who put together a special performance of The Promise with 16 of them playing and singing on stage – a moment to cherish.
