Hopkins Society Jazz Evening
We hosted one of the most popular events in our school calendar recently: The Hopkins Society Jazz Evening. Our refectory was full of enthusiastic supporters who were treated to an evening of excellent jazz, excellent food and excellent company. The Jazz Band from the Oratory Prep School under the direction of Linda Anderson got the evening off to a magnificent start and they were able to give an encore to an audience that was very keen for more. The Big Band of The Oratory School along with Harry Evans on trumpet and Twm Dylan on bass played brilliantly under the direction of Gary Howarth. Solos were heard and applauded aplenty, with the evening being rounded off by a performance from Alycia Lewis, formerly of Queen Anne’s School, Caversham and a set of late night jazz. We are looking forward to next year already!
