The Music Department held a concert involving over 50 musicians in school to continue raising funds for the school’s Music Department. Former GCSE musicians also came back to help out and perform in the event to work with and inspire younger students.
Vocal performances from Year 7 & 8 musicians: Mia Compton, Dulcie Old, Martyna Wojcik, Harry Sankey, Patryk Klimek & Sophie Goulden, Jess Waites and Beth Issatt were sang with confidence. Instrumental performances from Year 7 & 8 performers: Emma Bowen, Ed Crothers & Connor Sillitoe were performed excellently.
GCSE Musicians also demonstrated outstanding talent with solo performances from Lucy King & Emily Sherburn.
The Harmony Choir performed 4 songs at the event and made a fantastic sound on the stage which they have been rehearsing for over the past month.
The concert also had a variety of novelty acts including a cover of ‘Mamma Mia’ by Abba sang by parents: Mrs King, Mrs Forster, Mrs Sillitoe, Mrs Andrews & Mr Read.
Staff were also involved in a glockenspiel battle between the Senior Leadership Team (Mrs Stephenson, Mrs Issatt, Mrs Knight & Mr Harris) and the PE Department (Mrs Doyle, Mrs Scott & Mrs Lowe). Their sense of fun was evident and exciting for the young musicians in school seeing staff contributing to the Music Department.
Special thanks goes to Josh Forster for obtaining donations from many local companies writing to them on behalf of the GCSE Musicians in school.
The evening was a great success! The students, as always, produced an excellent show full of fun and inspiration.
Well done to everyone involved!!
