Those of you who tuned in to watch the NHSG Lockdown Concert on Wednesday 16th May will know that the efforts of the NHSG Music Department thoroughly paid off with the success of our virtual musical production.

In the absence of our Spring and Summer concerts in school, Mr Newey had one objective: to lift the spirits of our community using the power of NHSG Music. Senior School pupils recorded their performances from the safety of home and sent it to Mr Newey, who pieced together their musical talents into a stunning 80 minute showcase.

It was a lovely feeling to know we were all watching together, unified in the admiration for beautiful music and we received some wonderful feedback from parents:

“I write to express our gratitude for the work done by the Music department at NHSG. The concert provided a real lift to us as a family and it was made extra special as grandparents and other family members across the country were able to enjoy the talent, whereas in ‘normal times’ they would not have the opportunity to do so.
It was lovely to see so many of the girls take part.”

We hope you will be able to enjoy NHSG music live in the school hall soon, but for now, the lockdown concert has made the wait a little easier! Thank you to all the girls that took part and to Mr Newey for bringing this historic event into being.
