Music in the Learning Commons

We have so many talented boys at our school, and we love celebrating their creativity. This year, to complement the announcement of our Photography Competition awards, we also showcased the talents of three amazing piano players at a lunchtime concert. In a magnificent show of skill and camaraderie, the Learning Commons was packed as Years 9 – 12 boys were entertained by these wonderful musicians – Kai and brothers Remi and Wylie who performed individually and together in two highly entertaining duets.

With great skill and aplomb each of the boys performed for more than four minutes without music. Kai performed Tarantella by Franz Liszt; Remi performed The Greatest by Sia; and Wylie performed an improvisation on a song by the American band Green Day. Wylie and Remi then went on to perform a duet, switching places as they played, much to the delight of the crowd!

This event was the first of our Music in the Learning Commons concerts featuring our baby grand piano generously donated by BGS Old Boy George Kelly ’16. The event was a fantastic way of bringing music right to where many of our boys like to be at lunchtimes, and the video below gives a taste of the wonderful music we enjoyed on the day.
