Music Festival 2017
After a fantastic Finale Concert, congratulations go to Lauren Simpson our Musician of the Year, and Bethan Spragg who has retained the title of Young Musician of the Year. Our Judge for the evening, Richard Sission, commented that both of these students showed “ambition” and a “sense of daring” yet still maintaining “a personal touch”. Indeed Richard was impressed with each of our students, all of whom displayed a real sense of maturity on their instruments. He summed up the evening with the following, “If the rest of the school is at good as this, what an amazing place to be”.
All the parents and staff present agreed that the Finale Concert was a pleasure to watch and I hope that members of the ensembles that also participated marvellously in the concert were inspired by what they heard. Well done to all students who took part in the Festival. It has been lovely sharing your music making, and I am proud of you all. Keep it up everyone!
