Performances Galore for Music Students
Music students have hit the ground running this Academic year. We have seen a number of performance events starting with the first monthly Open Mic session. Students from years 7 to 13 took part, entertaining the audience with their musical talents. Performances included an outstanding guitar solo from Aiden in year 9, a delightful vocal performance from Joanne in year 7 and an accomplished rendition of The Entertainer from year 12 student, Molly.
Our year 11 BTEC students held their first concert: Take Note. Both performance groups have been rehearsing in their ensembles for the last four weeks and their hard work was evident in the excellent standard of their performances. The technology group took on the challenge of producing the concert and were responsible for all aspects of production including sound, lighting, stage management, promotion and FOH. A big well done to all students involved, we look forward to seeing your final assessed projects ion April. Ruskington students will be performing their Take Note concert on Thursday 11th October.
Year 7 and 8 students were also treated to a concert featuring two very different, but equally fantastic performance groups. The first was the Band of the Royal Auxiliary Air Force, a woodwind ensemble which features St George’s member of staff, Mr Linger. The band entertained the audience with a number of well known pieces including the theme from Pirates of the Caribbean and the Cantina Song from Stars Wars. This was followed by the first performance from our new year 12 Music class who played songs that they have been rehearsing in their lessons over the last few weeks. The concert finished with a lively performance of Five Colours In Her Hair. A huge well done to our year 12 students and a massive thank you to the members of the Band of the Royal Auxiliary Air Force for taking the time to come and perform for us.
