A large audience were treated to some fine solos, duets and ensemble items on tuned and untuned percussion, using the whole performance space. Particularly effective use was made of the galleries with some skilful lighting design provided by Mr David Grant and Josh Denton.
The finale was an impressive piece that brought together percussionists from all sections of the college – some 30 musicians on stage together.
Director of Music, Mr Jonathan Ling, said: “Percussion playing is alive and well at Christ College, with some six ensembles meeting weekly to rehearse. All students are taught to play a range of instruments and the department has an impressive stock of equipment.”
