On 250 students from selected schools in Auckland joined Emma Featherstone and our own King’s College Symphony Orchestra and Choirs to perform at a charity concert at the Vodafone Events Centre, as a fundraiser for Play it Strange — a charity that supports youth music in New Zealand.

Sir Bob Geldof and Mick Fleetwood were the guests of the night, and our groups were invited to perform Sir Bob’s I Don’t Like Mondays and Fleetwood Mac’s Dreams. Thomas Clarkson (Year 13, Major) and Claudia Linton (Year 11, Middlemore) were both invited to sing solo. 

“The standing ovation from Sir Bob for I Don’t Like Mondays then from Mick for Dreams was a highlight for the kids,” says Ms Featherstone. “Another epic night for King’s College.”
