Swithuns Live!

Philippa Bonney U6 writes: On 25 January day girls, boarders, parents, teachers and even past pupils gathered in Harvey Hall to support Swithun’s Live!, the school rock concert. The acts consisted of the combined junior and senior Sax Ensemble playing The Sound of Silence, duets by Too Blue and Damn the Neutrino (formed of Old Girls Maggie Chen and Liv Wilson (who travelled down for one night from the University of York specially!)) and a solo performance by Chrissie Gregson U6 featuring one of her original songs. The bands included both junior (Elastic Band and Rock Dimension) and senior school bands (Yellow Paint and The Morrows), as well as the Staff Band and Shagwagg from Winchester College.  It was not only the incredible musical talent that made the night so enjoyable but the professional staging by Mr Freakley and the huge amount of support from everyone who attended.
