This has been a packed term of musical activities and the girls have risen to the challenge!

The term started with our first Winter Recital which gave the girls the opportunity to perform individually. This was good preparation for all the competitions and exams that were coming up. Girls were involved in both Associated Board music exams and Trinity College exams. We had nearly 100 pupils involved in the music in Perform in Perth and 40 girls took part in our own Kilgraston Young Musician competition. In addition, we had Leonie Brink winning the Perth Chamber Music Jubilee Award and Jenny Whitaker in the Rotary Regional Final – on voice not trumpet!

The string players have had some exciting opportunities to develop this term. In February, we had the Prep Schools Advanced String Day. Over 70 visiting pupils from 9 different schools joined us for a wonderful day of string music and the feedback was terrific. The fiddle group had a performance at the Neil Gow Festival in Birnam Arts and in preparation they had a workshop with one of Scotland’s top fiddlers, Pete Clark.

The term has culminated in our new Spring Concert. We had some debuts of new groups including a String Trio and a Ukulele Group alongside our existing chamber ensembles. There was plenty of Abba and the Beatles and we finished with some rousing hip hop music! An eclectic, enthusiastic and energetic ending to the term!
