SPRING IS IN THE EAR

Posted on 14th April 2015

The annual Spring Concert was held on Thursday 26 March. The concert featured the Junior and Senior Choirs; Junior and Senior Orchestras; Traditional Groups; Stage Musical Groups; and, a number of smaller ensembles and soloists. The GCSE Music class of 2015 presented some of their own compositions. It was a poignant occasion as a number of our Year 14 students represented the school for the final time. Particular recognition was given to Year 14 traditional musicians, who have represented the school on numerous occasions on both a national and international level. The Year 12 GCSE Drama and Performing Arts students also treated the audience to an extract from the play ‘Steel Magnolias’. Around 120 musicians took to the stage and left the audience dancing in their seats. Miss Donnelly was delighted with the contribution each student has made to Music and Drama departments during this busy year.
