The Summer Serenade Evening was held at the end of the Summer Term to celebrate the wonderful music that has filled our practice rooms throughout the 2018/2019 academic year. We are incredibly proud of what our young musicians have accomplished and were delighted to showcase their talent at this event.
The first half of the concert included some of our finest soloists, our successful Wind and Brass Band, our youngest Junior String Ensemble and our enthusiastic Choir with over 70 pupils from Year 3 to Year 8.
A visual celebration of Marlborough College Malaysia accompanied the performances depicting the incredible journey that the College has embarked on from the initial vision to the present day.
The second half took inspiration from the Last Night of the Proms. The Proms is a well known and traditionally British eight week summer season of daily orchestral concerts in England. Prom is short for promenade concert, a term which originally referred to outdoor concerts in London, where the audience were free to stroll around while the orchestra was playing. The vision behind this tradition that all started back in 1895 was to bring music to the people and to make music accessible to all. It is with this vision in mind that this evening has come into being. Music is often referred to as the international language: a language that needs no translation, that communicates feelings beyond those that words can express. The audience was as spectacular as the performers joining the celebrations with unrivalled enthusiasm and zealous flag waving!
Thank you for making this such a memorable end of year music celebration.
