GCSE Music Recital 2022

On Thursday 3rd March Remove and Hundred musicians held a recital for their fellow pupils. As part of the GCSE course, the pupils are required to perform a piece of music on their chosen instrument. For the Hundred this was their final performance piece and for the Remove pupils, it was their first opportunity to perform in front of an audience.


The music varied from classical to rock, over a wide range of instruments. The first half of the recital focused on classical piano, flute, and violin pieces, finishing with the string quartet’s performance of Palladio. After the interval, the tempo changed with more rock and pop pieces being played by soloists and bands.


The evening was a brilliant showcase of the talent of the GCSE musicians and was a perfect opportunity to show younger pupils the scope of a music GCSE.
