On Wednesday 25th February, we were fortunate to welcome former pupil and opera singer Suzy Fischer back to AGGS. Suzy performed a wonderful lunchtime concert, accompanied by pianist Jonathon Ware. The hall was packed full of students and staff who wanted to hear this performance. Each piece was introduced and Suzy explained how to perceive each one artistically, and showed how much drama is also involved as a singer, even in a concert situation.
Our GCSE and A Level music students, along with pupils who take singing lessons, attended an afternoon masterclass with Suzy, at which they were able to learn about life as an opera singer, as well as pick up some valuable tips about musical interpretation as well as expert technical vocal ideas.
