William Cowper it was who said "Variety's the very spice of life." If the Variety of the programmes of these Music on Thursdays concerts, and the variety of today's programme from St John's School, are anything to judge by then that is certainly a true statement. We were treated to music from Borowski to Schubert, from Ridout to J Strauss, from Sondheim to Rogers and to Gershwin.
The talents shown by these students was remarkable. We not only heard solos on the violin, trombone, piano and alto saxophone, but also singing from an alto and a baritone, and a soprano who brought the concert to its close with a delightful rendering of 'Mein Herr Marquis' from Der Fledermaus.
Thank you St John's for bringing such a range of talents for our enjoyment. We wish them well in their musical futures. FP.
