An incredible intro from Izzy Pinder and Tara Cunningham who each played an opening piece for the band, Purple Mafia burst onto stage at RHS on Wednesday with 170+ screaming fans from Year 7-13 tucked into the Sophie Cameron Theatre. With the significant accolade of being ‘the best school crowd’, our girls had made posters and very much enjoyed singing along with the boys. Helen Boulding the band’s agent and songwriter was extremely complimentary and said that they would love to return one day for another concert.
The boys clearly had a great time as did their new fan base. We were really proud to be part of the band’s launch and feel sure that we were part of something quite special. Our music scholars benefited from a Q&A session with the and post-gig which was both insightful and inspirational. With thanks to Izzy, Tara and the staff, catering and estates team for their support.
