Wycombe High’s musicians and singers dazzled the world once again with a stunning Carol Concert to help raise money for All Saints High Wycombe.
Led by the Music Department’s Mr Bell, Mr Kidd and Mr Davey, with 119 student performers, and filmed & recorded by an all-student crew, the festive musical extravaganza went out to the world via Wycombe High TV, and was viewed around the globe, from Ireland to Australia to the US of A.
Once again, stymied by Covid, the school had to adapt from its usual setting of All Saints to the less evocative surrounds of the WHS Main Hall, but the music and song swept the viewers up into the magic of Christmas, and the 12 Lessons delivered the message of the Nativity.
Just one of many stars of the evening, Year 10’s Sienna Rebello, stunned – once again – with her unique and powerful voice. “On Tuesday evening, I performed as a soloist and as part of the WHS voices in the Carol Service,” she said. “It was a wonderful event and although the circumstances were different, it was still an amazing experience and the music was as magical as ever.
The talent displayed on Tuesday was outstanding and with the two festive concerts within the last two weeks of term, it really felt like Christmas had arrived! It was so amazing to see the different year groups distanced but coming together to harmonise once more before departing for the holidays. To be a part of multiple concerts already in this academic year has been wonderful and I have enjoyed every second as I know many others have too. I want to thank everybody for coming together and making this happen and for all the support from family and friends as it was truly special.”
