Saturday the 18th of May Under the expert direction of our Director of Music, Mrs Cook, 31 Tranby students from Years 6-12 presented a recital of solo, duo and small ensemble pieces at Hull Minster, as part of the Vox Trinitas Summer Recital Series. From harps to electric guitars, Mozart to Wheezer, our musicians performed beautifully, representing the school impeccably and showcasing the very best of what it means to be part of the Tranby family. We are so proud of you all! The recital coincided beautifully with the History of Hull Grammar School display erected by our Head of History, Mrs Rayns and her Y12 history class. Feedback from the audience was extremely positive with much praise for our talented and dedicated students. We are delighted to say, we have already been invited back next year!
