We are delighted to announce the success of the annual Sixth Form Champagne Soirée which took place on Wednesday, 21st April.
It was a magical evening with candlelit tables adorned with tulips, plates of strawberries and glasses of bubbling champagne. The ambience was heightened by the glorious performances given by the girls that night.
For Mrs Meyer, previous head of music for 17 years, who has aided the development of countless girls attending Coloma, this was her last soirée. She commented that, “The standard was ridiculously high, as ever; each performance was professional and extremely moving”. The pieces ranged from contemporary musical theatre including She Used To Be Mine from “Waitress” to Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in C minor.
The soirée enabled girls to display a variety of skills in different genres, thus developing their performance technique and giving them practice for their forthcoming music exams.
One Sixth Former commented that the evening, “was an amazing experience which captured both the nerves and excitement of being a performer”.
We thank the Music Department for a delightful evening and we wish the Upper Sixth girls good luck in their A Level exams, as well as Mrs Meyer in her new school.
