ACS Egham International School students recently visited Langley Grammar School (LGS) in Slough for the annual 'Friendship Through Music' concert, meeting up with musical peers from LGS and St Bernard's Catholic Grammar School for an afternoon of music.

Now entering its fifth year, the 'Friendship Through Music' concert had been set up by ACS Egham's Head of Music, Irina Walters, as a way for students in the local area to come together to share their passion for music and the art of performing with like-minded peers.

After the concert was kicked off by a wonderful performance of the Sound of Music's 'Edelweiss' and a 'Les Miserables' medley by Castleview Primary School, each of the main schools performed five separate solos before joining together for an exhilarating rendition of the jazz classic, 'I've Got Rhythm'.

Later in the same week, ACS Egham students also showcased their musical talent at the annual ACS Egham 'Musician Of the Year' music competition, which sees students from different year groups take to the stage to vie for the coveted whole school title.

Adjudicated by John Heighway, former Deputy Principal of Trinity College of Music who has judged the competition for the past three years, students Lukas Juen aged 10 and his sister Anika Juen aged 12 were crowned musicians of the year in their respective age categories, each taking home a trophy.

Irina Walters, Head of Music at ACS Egham commented:

'Music provides a fantastic opportunity for students of all ages to come together and share their love of performance, and it's great to see these two annual events continue to grow and give students a chance to shine, individually or as a group. Students worked really hard both for the 'Friendship Through Music' concert, and their entries to the ACS Egham music competition, and should all feel very proud of how they represented themselves and the school.'
