Music is an outburst of the soul

― Frederick Delius 

At the recent Junior School assembly, we were entertained by Prestissimo – Jazz. This was their debut performance. Prestissimo – Jazz was formed at the beginning of Term 2 and is a specialist ensemble spearheaded by Nick Southcott where members are invited. The debut Jazz performance consisted of solos from Emerson U (6Ta) on keys, David M (6La) on trumpet, Ben L (6Yo) on violin, Tom H (6La) on cello, and Harry H (6Ta) on bass. The performance also featured Ezekiel T (6La), Oscar H (6La), Max M (6Fo), Oscar H (6Ta), and Tim B (6Ta).

Miss Jabaji said, “I love it and was dancing along as you played!” Tim B said, “Out of all the ensembles I’ve played in, this is the best fun. They performed Sonnymoon by Sonny Rollins
