Kilgraston Christmas Concert 2022
On Friday 2nd December, the whole school community gathered in the spectacular setting of the Perth Concert Hall for our annual Christmas Concert.
The audience were wowed by performances in music, dance and drama based on Christmas cards each portraying a different theme from Disney to a Scottish Christmas. Kilgraston must be almost unique in having every pupil in the school on stage performing which gives the concert a genuine whole school community ethos. Pupils and staff had been busy rehearsing all term and four days of intensive rehearsals in the run up to the concert itself were a fantastic build up to the night itself.
Mr Morley and Mrs Murphy with the technical help of Mr Pryke were delighted with the concert itself and despite many pupils battling with coughs and colds gave their all on the stage. Mrs Murphy said of the concert, “”I was so happy we got to showcase all the talents of Kilgraston – from the visual artists to the Highland dancers, from the lyrical trio to the comedy sketches. I loved putting together the programme and I genuinely hope it reflected the very special place Kilgraston is and all the magic that Christmas offers us” while Laura in Lower 6th who is our Music Captain and took a leading role in the concert made reference to the excitement felt by pupils each year, “I look forward to the Christmas concert every year. The whole school rehearsing and performing together makes it really special to be a part of.”
But it was not only the pupils on the stage who were buzzing after the concert, it was lovely to receive so much behind the scenes support from staff, with one teacher commenting, “I am so, so proud to teach at Kilgraston when as a school we are represented by such an amazing display of talent, teamwork and a ‘can do’ attitude”. As the strains of songs that have been heard sung in corridors and on buses since late September start to fade away it is already time to start planning ahead for next year, do put the date in your diaries, Friday 8th December 2023!Back to News
