A Musical Celebration

PRESCOT SCHOOL assembled an outstanding group of past and present pupils for a concert on Friday, July 8th, 1994. Members of the audience were privileged to hear some truly wonderful performances by these young musicians.

The oldest of the group, Tim Williams (27) had been a regular member of the School Orchestra and also had played in both the Knowsley and Merseyside Youth Orchestras. He went on to study at Huddersfield Polytechnic and the Royal Northern College of Music when performed both in England and in Europe, winning a number of prizes. Tim is a percussionist, specialising m the marimba (a larger relative of the xylophone). He has performed with many professional groups and is now well on the way to making a name for himself.

His performance astonished and delighted the audience, as did the truly wonderful piano playing of Paul Lewis (22), a young pianist of outstanding talent. Paul left Prescot School to attend Cheetham's School of Music in Manchester and is currently studying at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.

He has already won many major prizes and in May 1994 made his London debut as a professional pianist. He has broadcast on BBC television and radio and on Classic FM. We should soon be hearing more of Paul Lewis!

Other soloists were James Vincent (22) with a virtuoso performance on the trombone, Ben Sills (18) an outstanding trumpeter, Laura Sills (16) a gifted violinist and David Kemick (16) a very promising cellist. Laura and David are leaving Prescot this summer (1994) to go on to 'A' level studies.

The School has every reason to be proud of its musical prowess. As a member of the audience was heard to say, "There isn't a school in the country that wouldn't be proud to show off such an array of talent." Look out for the next concert at Prescot. It should be we! worth your attention!

Congratulations, Prescot School
