Music Students Put on a Show!
13 Mar 2017
The talents of GCSE music students were showcased for parents, friends and family during an evening of musical entertainment.
About 40 students performed in the showcase, with technical support from music technology students, Ben Coulson and Ellie Webster.
The evening featured a range of musical styles including a brass quartet, two saxophone quartets, musical theatre and pop songs. There was also a rock band and other solo instrumentalists and singers.
Music teacher Kris Chas-Byrne said: "The standard of the GCSE music performance coursework was so high this year, we felt it was a shame that the only people to have heard the pieces were the assessors in the exam rooms – so we put on the concert to showcase the performances."
Year 11 students following the BTEC music technology course are required to make a demo CD or put on a live music night as part of their course.
They will be involved in another live music night later this month when they organise an ‘Open Mic Night’ on 22 March at 6pm in the lecture theatre.
