This yearâ€™s Christmas concerts showcased a record number of students â€“ over 260 in total â€“ as usual performing a wide variety of music from Howard Blakeâ€™s â€˜The Snowmanâ€™, performed by Junior Choir and String Orchestra to the Jazz Bandâ€™s cover of â€˜Feeling Goodâ€™, starring Y12 singer Effi-Nicki S.
All 16 ensembles/choirs/orchestras/bands were featured across 2 evenings, to packed halls and there was a lovely festive atmosphere, complete with Christmas tree and tinselled instruments â€“ the most ingenious being Faith Edwardsâ€™ french horn, literally lit up with fairy lights!
Thanks as usual go to all performers, who dedicate so much of their free time to practising and attending rehearsals, to all staff and Sixth-Form student ensemble leaders who direct them. Also to the Art Department for some fantastic art work on the programmes, Mrs Brennan in Reprographics, the caretaking staff and PTA for providing refreshments. We also could not put on such evenings without the generous support of staff who supervise students during the concert.
Thankyou to all!
