Mr Robson’s Advent Concert

Mr Robson‘s annual, baroque style concert took place on the 12th December and was a fantastic opportunity for singers, string players and
woodwind players to showcase talent and play some beautiful 17th and 18th century music.
This year, there were some gorgeous pieces in the lineup including a Harpsichord concerto by Vivaldi
and “How beautiful are the feet” from Handel’s Messiah.
The evening was also dotted with readings of both mediaeval and Dickensian texts from different
English teachers of Borlase like “The Cratchit’s Christmas Dinner” from Charles Dickens’ “a Christmas
Carol” and “Gawain and the green knight” from the stories of Arthur and the round table.
Overall it was a wonderful and entertaining evening filled with culture and traditional Carol singing to
end the evening! A fantastic event to both watch and take part in.
