“Schools of Many Nations, a Family of One.”

Report from the Music Department

We are delighted that our pupils continue to have the opportunity to perform in events and concerts both in and out of school, including major venues in Nairobi.

At the end of September, both Charlotte Ngure & Tanya Haria took part in the Cellobration concert at the Kenya National Theatre. In October, we then hosted the Young Vocalist’s Competition at Peponi School. Although it was only the third edition of this event, I was delighted that there was a 50% increase in the number of competitors. Similarly, the Finalists came from nine different schools. On our part, the following pupils reached the Finals amidst fierce competition in the Intermediate Solo category: Raahi Shah, Tamara Oganga and Saiyana Pandya. Well done to all three girls!

As we have come to expect, November is normally a very busy musical month. On Friday 10th November, the School Choir, Brass Ensemble & String Ensemble performed at the Remembrance Service with Taha Jivanji (Trumpet) playing The Last Post and The Rouse and then, over the weekend, Ruchi Raja (Violin) took part in the Nairobi Orchestra concerts at Sabis International School in Runda.

The following week, on Thursday 16th November, both Peponi House and Peponi School collaborated to present the annual Joint Peponi Schools’ Concert. In addition to our ensembles (Staff Choir, School Choir, String Ensemble, Brass Ensemble & Orchestra), our soloists did us proud, namely Kwame Abuga (Piano), Amani Munene (Alto Saxophone), Aria Taylor (Harp) & Charlotte Ngure (Cello). Our Lower 5th band also took to the stage consisting of Raahi Shah, Saneeka Haria, Mukiri Mugambi, Dhyan Khimasia and Taha Jivanji. The final piece in the concert was Adiemus by Karl Jenkins which featured over 180 performers on stage! Well done to all our participants and we look forward to the next edition in November 2024 at Peponi School.

Throughout the term we have also seen the continued success of the Tea-time concerts which have featured a number of debut performances from across the different year groups. Congratulations to all who took part in any way this term. Next term is just as busy, if not busier!
