SCD Virtual Summer Concert 2020
Miss Stevens, Head of Performing Arts and Music Faculty, has produced a fabulous Virtual Summer 2020 Concert for the enjoyment of the St Clement Danes School Community, which is available to listen online via SoundCloud. The concert begins with the virtual choir* performing 'Someday', followed by two Year 13 performances which were recorded in the Barbirolli Hall before lockdown. This is followed by a range of performances recorded in lockdown - at home, in the garden and one even featuring the sound of Chorleywood tube in the background!
The concert finishes with a recording of the gospel choir performance made during the Vienna Musical Tour in July 2019, when 80 students and staff members were privileged to perform in Vienna's prestigious St Stephen's Cathedral.
*The virtual choir is made up of over 40 voices each of whom recorded their part to a backing track that Miss Stevens sent out to all choir members. On return of the recordings Miss Stevens added their vocals together to form a choir. The singers are a combination of current students, ex-students, teachers, parents, and friends of SCD.
Miss Stevens extended her thanks to Mrs Deeley for recording the wind and brass groups.
A huge thank you to Miss Stevens for producing such a fantastic concert for the school community's enjoyment, and which showcases the enormous talent that our students display in this musical extravaganza!
