Music at RHS                                  The challenge becomes greater each year
                                              to surpass the many musical highlights
                                              of the previous season - the mesmerising
                                              moments of Elgar’s Dream of Gerontius,
                                              the pulsating beats of the BBC Big Band,
                                              the stupendous cacophony of 700
                                              primary school pupils beatboxing with
                                              Dominic Peckham and hugely impressive
                                              joint concert with the Royal Marines
                                              Training Band. Well, we’ve done it again!
                                              Over the next few pages, you will see
                                              a greater selection of concerts, recitals,
                                              masterclasses and workshops than ever
                                              before. We are extremely proud of our
                                              music making and the huge breadth
                                              and variety we offer our pupils, as well as
engaging with communities in the surrounding area. If you are planning your first visit to
the School, or you are a returning regular concert goer, you cannot fail to be impressed
by the combination of the impressive standard of musicianship of our pupils and the
magnificent backdrop of the School’s riverside location.
With more than 50 events in the School’s outstanding concert venues, music at RHS
relies on the assistance of a huge range of sponsors, supporters, parents and pupils.
We offer our sincere thanks to each and every one, as their invaluable contributions,
together with those of the performers, help to make RHS such a unique and special

                                               Sing Up! Suffolk is now in its third year! After hosting 800 singers last year we are again inviting
                                               Year 5 and 6 primary school pupils to come and join us for an energy-filled, fun-packed vocal
                                               day directed by the hugely charismatic choral leader Dominic Peckham. This again promises
                                               to be an explosive, high-energy and inspirational day of singing and vocal exploration and will
                                               undoubtedly be an unforgettable experience for your pupils and staff. From Motown to Mozart,
                                               African street-songs to Chart Mash-Ups… there’s something for everyone.
                                               The nature of Dominic’s workshops is to encourage the singers, in an un-intimidating fashion,
                                               to listen to one another and learn to understand the many aspects of ensemble singing.
                                               Dominic is, however, insistent that he never loses
                                               sight of the basic aim of making the experience
                                               enjoyable for all. Dominic guarantees to leave the    9.30AM ASSEMBLY                                                 BURNS
