Summer Jazz Concert

The Senior Swing Band, along with some guest musicians and student-led small ensembles, put on an excellent show on Sunday 19th June for our annual Summer Jazz Concert. Repertoire included classic jazz standards such as Duke Ellington’s ‘In A Sentimental Mood’, and film favourites such as the theme tune to ‘Mission Impossible’. It was fantastic to see how the jazz scene amongst the students is growing under the leadership of drummer Gary Hill and jazz pianist Joe Thompson.

This Is Our Voice

On Friday 17th June, we welcomed five local primary schools to the Ruddock Hall as part of an outreach programme to develop their choirs and help them to teach music and songwriting. Around 150 primary school children took part in the event, which saw them showcasing their self-composed pieces which they had been working on for six months. Thank you to the students who volunteered their time to help the children around and to ensure that the event ran smoothly.
