Gala Dinner Dynamic Earth

Procession and Sponsored Walk

Three videos created at the Gala Dinner.

The three interviews were conducted by Tom Bacciarelli, and produced, directed and edited by Ian Cowie, current President of the RHS Club (with a very little bit of camera input from me). The three interview were unanimous in their support for the music education they received at the school, and the extra mural activity including the KT’s.

John Murray described by the interviewer as one of the giant haystacks of the musical world, talked about the 1000 plus pupils who travelled to Europe on the music exchanges during his tenure, also questioned why he was so regularly cast as the villain in the school stage shows.

Ken Thomson described how he was immersed in music from his first day at school, and in later years rehearsing music while wearing his rugby strip so that he he quickly move on to his next extra-mural activity. In 2008 he guested for the KT’s, and had to assure some of the youngsters that he was indeed still alive.

Anne Richards stressed the importance of keeping in touch with the classmates who accompany you throughout your school and the rest of your life, and named her principal teacher influences as Dr Forsyth, Dr Murray, Mr Duthie and Mr Davidson

Another video – this one the the KT Singers splendid performance of Thomas Morley and John Rutter (also from Ian Cowie Ian Cowie)
