Wednesday 14 November 2012

JFM at The Last Night of the PromsOnce again, our Director of Music John Moore travelled out to Shrewsbury International School in Bangkok over the half-term exeat, and took up the baton for their renowned annual concert that was presented in association with Rolls Royce and British Airways. John shared the platform with Jonathan Ling, Director of Music at Shrewsbury International School, and other guest musicians.  Jonathan is an Old Salopian and one of John Moore's music scholars.

The concert programme included delights such as the themes from The Magnificent Seven, Forrest Gump and Gladiator, and the Hallelujah Chorus and excerpts from Les Miserables, where Shrewsbury International School's Symphony Orchestra was joined by a 90-strong choir.

The packed audience included several of our own governors and our Headmaster, who enjoyed a spectacular fireworks display overlooking the Chao Phraya river after the concert.
