Spring Music Concert 2016

The annual Spring Music Concert is traditionally the final opportunity for Year 11 Musicians to perform alongside their younger fellow students and as always, last night was an emotional affair for our seasoned performers.

Erin Donnelly, Head of Ringsbury House, has only missed one concert since Year 7. She said: "It was great to be able to perform one last time to the enthusiastic and intimate Bradon Forest Theatre audience. It was so sad that it was the last concert. I'm really going to miss it!" Erin is going on to study Musical Performance at Cirencester College.

Ela Kanani and Gen Thorpe, who played guitar and sang respectively on 'My House', said that performing in school concerts has done wonders for their confidence. Ela said: "I don't get nervous anymore and definitely don't shake as much!" Gen added: "It encourages you to improve as you know you're playing in front of a paying audience. Practice, practice, practice!"

Head Girl, Ruvarashe Mathereke, who sang and played bass guitar and is predicted an A* in the subject, offered this advice for the younger students: "Just go for it and take part! No one will judge you for it as everyone appreciates the fact that you're giving it a go.

Take the opportunity while you're at school and you won't regret it."

The girls all agreed that it was one of the best concerts yet with excellent performances from the KS3 students, but the stand out piece was from fellow Year 11, Jack Winson. Jack, who is going on to study Music Technology at Cirencester College, played two solo piano pieces; White Clouds and Metamorphosis.

Well done to all performers, young and old! We wish the Year 11's the best for the future and look forward to many more exciting concerts from Years 7 to 10.

Erin added: " Thank you to Mrs Hutchings and Mrs Fry for their constant encouragement and support. They've been there whenever we've needed them and we appreciate it!"
