The Summer Concert on the eve of Speech Day was a wonderful celebration of music at Worth. A superb evening provided a review of some of the musical highlights of the year at Worth and featured performances in a wide range of styles by our talented young musicians. The concert began with Worth’s 50-strong Symphony Orchestra performing Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture. Other musical treats included our Chamber Choir, the winner of the Worth Musician of the Year competition and jazzier numbers from the Saxophone Ensemble, Jazz Band, Concert Band and Gospel Choir.

The inaugural Worth Musician of the Year final in May 2019 showcased the wonderful musical talent within the School. Four fantastic musicians provided a feast of music in the Coleburt Room. The final was judged by Mr Cristian Persinaru, a prize-winning violinist as well as a conductor and teacher. The four finalists included a singer, a saxophonist, a trombonist and a pianist. Following an incredibly tough decision to make, Mr Persinaru chose Freya Barker as the inaugural Worth Musician of the Year.
A jubilant St Anne's House celebrated as the whole of the senior school came together for the annual House Music competition. The nine senior Houses each performed a choral and ensemble piece and St Anne's emerged triumphant in both categories with their versions of gospel classic 'Oh Happy Day' and 'Burn'. St Mary's House came second overall and Gervase House, last year's winners, were third. Pictures by Sam Stephenson.
Prizewinning violinist Cristian Persinaru described the inaugural Worth Musician of the Year semi-final as "brilliant playing, brilliant singing". Worth Musician of the Year has been introduced by the Music department, removing the solo round from House Music to make it a competition in itself. Anyone in the school is free to enter with any style or instrument. At the semi-final in March 2019 four musicians were chosen to progress to the final in the Summer Term. The winner will receive a trophy and will get to perform at the Eve of Speech Day Concert.
