As part of Music Festival Week Queen Margaret�s School played host to the girls� choir from Queen Margaret�s School Duncan in British Columbia. Choirs from both schools partook in a concert held on 24th March in QM�s Chapman Theatre.

Deputy Head Carole Cameron said of the evening:

�The concert was vibrant and exciting and a wonderful opportunity for the students of both schools to perform together. Our link with QM Duncan goes back a long way as an old girl from our school founded the Queen Margaret�s in British Columbia. We look forward to performing together again in the future.�

The joint concert came towards the end of a week of musical celebration that started on Monday 21st March with a Musical Showcase. Highlights of the week included the performance of Schumann�s Piano Quintet by the Field String Quartet and featuring Queen Margaret�s Director of Music, Jeremy Bowyer playing piano and a concert of original songs composed and performed by QM students on the Wednesday evening.

The week ended on Saturday 26th March with a fantastic Battle of the Bands organised by Music Prefect Zoe Gilbert. It was an exciting and vibrant concert featuring bands from across the country.
