A vibrant musical experience
“Each and every music pupil takes part in a band or ensemble group during their tuition in order to help them develop self-discipline, self-confidence and teamwork. Music has been proven to develop the mind, body, coordination of motor skills and build imagination”. Ms Nici Coleman, Director of Music
Sundowners are held on Thursdays at 16h45. Pupils are encouraged to perform their solo pieces in this informal non-intimidating space. These concerts also provide our pupils with a space to learn proper concert etiquette and support their fellow peers.
The First Band and the Concert Band perform regularly for school functions as well as for the community and are actively involved in some fundraiser concerts.
Groups and ensembles list:
At Kingswood, the Choirs (Prep Department, Junior and Senior) cover a large repertoire of sacred music throughout the year, where they take part in key performances for special services at the School. All Grade 8’s are required to audition and take part in the Senior Choir. The senior choir is also involved in community events as well as Eisteddfods.
There is great emphasis placed on our musical ensembles. This is where our pupils really learn the value of making music together and being part of a team.
The Kingswood College Concert Band has a proud performance history with both national and international tours being undertaken by them. The Concert Band also plays a significant role in College life. Several smaller ensembles include strings, recorders, marimbas, clarinets and saxophones. There are also choirs and occasional ensembles.
