Welcome to the latest edition of Purcell’s Weekly Highlights!

Commonwealth Service 2020

On Monday 9th March, the Purcell Brass Quintet – Ewan Parkin, Mejedi Owusu, Lucia Biescas Rue and Ramon Branch – performed with the Griffin Schools Commonwealth Choir during the Pre-Service of the Commonwealth Service 2020. The quintet played pieces of music which had been arranged by Purcell composition students and which had specific relevance to each region of the Commonwealth – Asia, Africa, the Pacific, the Caribbean and Europe. In addition to performing, trumpeter Ewan Parkin was selected as the Purcell representative to meet The Queen, Prince Charlies and other senior members of the Royal Family. Ewan spoke with Prince Charles, who is the School’s Royal Patron.

We are incredibly proud of the Purcell Brass Quintet, who not only performed but carried themselves superbly throughout. Well done to all involved.
