Regional Music for Youth Festival
Once again our music students took part in the Regional Music for Youth Festival at King’s Lynn. The Academy’s Senior Choir and Sixth Form Harmony Group took part and performed two songs for the Music mentors. The Senior Choir sang Somewhere Only We Know and Human while the Sixth Form Harmony Group sang Gambling Man and Run to You.
At the end of the festival the feedback received from the Music Mentors were incredibly positive. They said of the 6th Form Harmony Group, “I hope you stay together after your studies, as you have a really excellent quality, some impressive individual voices and a unique blend.” There was even a special mention for Ben, male soloist for his ‘impressive range’.
When asked for suggestions for development they said of the Senior Choir, “More, more, more of the same! The moves are great and you can just run with this style.”
Congratulations to all the performers who took part!
Towards the end of April the students will find out whether they got through to the National Festival which takes place in Birmingham in July. We will have our fingers crossed!
