Annual Benefit Concert

Last Saturday evening, a large audience of pupils, parents, alumni and staff of Runnymede College were treated to a magnificent performance of classical repertoire.

Taking place in the Julia Powell Sports Hall & Auditorium, our very own Olympia was the soloist in Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 4 in D major, K. 218. Talented string players from both the Prep and Senior school joined forces with the players of Madrid’s Orquesta Iuventas, which then continued to play Mozart’s famous Symphony No. 40 in G minor, K. 550. Following the rapturous applause for the performers after the drama, passion and beauty of Mozart’s music, Alberto in the VI Form joined the orchestra on drums for a piece of symphonic rock, which was a surprising change of gear, and a truly uplifting finale.

This was the first edition of what will be an annual benefit concert for the school charity. This year, of course, we are raising money for Fundación Aladina, which is a children’s cancer charity, working across Spain. There could not be a more worthy cause. Runnymede is passionate about providing opportunities for performance for pupils across the different phases of the school.

The next date for your diaries is March 20-21, when a modern interpretation of Sophocles’ Athenian tragedy ‘Antigone’ will be performed by thespians and instrumentalists of the Senior School.
