Princethorpe At Home - You'll Never Walk Alone

The musicians amongst you will enjoy this stirring rendition of the anthem You'll Never Walk Alone, put together by Princethorpe's Director of Music, Gil Cowlishaw.
The musicians amongst you will enjoy this musical masterpiece put together by Princethorpe’s Director of Music, Gil Cowlishaw that streamed on Friday 22 May at the finish of the first half of the Trinity Term. The Princethorpe At Home Recital proved to be every bit as enjoyable as the first virtual Social Distance-Sing Concert was before. 
Mr Cowlishaw had masterminded the whole event which this time included 27 performances submitted by pupils from Year 7 up to Lower Sixth, at Grades 1 to 8, some serious, some light-hearted, some downright silly (and wonderful!) and one pupil even using technology to perform a quintet with herself! The performers included pupils, staff, peripatetic teachers (including an OP) and look out for a special performance by the Headmaster, Ed Hester, as well. 
The lockdown recital included two very special group performances. The first a 12-piece a capella rendition of a mashup of Beyoncé’s Halo and Katrina and the Waves’ Walking on Sunshine and, in support of and as a tribute to Captain Tom and his NHS fundraising walk and all frontline medical staff working in the current crisis, a stirring 40-piece rendition of the moving anthem You’ll Never Walk Alone. Which you can watch the finale here:
Gil Cowlishaw explains, “Traditionally at this time of year, we have a music recital evening for pupils to share solo and small group items with their parents. The event is always popular so I knew we would have plenty of pupils wanting to perform. I also put out a call to see who would be interested in another group performance and had a great response. It was a lot of work putting it together but I know you will agree that the finished performance is both inspiring and uplifting, it really is very special!” 
A huge thanks to Gil and his wonderful Princethorpe vocalists and musicians.
