Christmas Concert 2022

We were delighted to be back at the Playhouse in Weston-super-Mare to kick off the festive season in style for the two nights of our Christmas Concerts 2022!

Audiences and performers alike were left filled with Christmas spirit, as the Soul Band wowed the crowd and the Year 7-9 choir made a beautiful sound. Instrumental music continues to be a strength, with two orchestras, Concert Band, flute group, our Brass Monkeys brass group, a saxophone quartet, Jazz Band and the Sixth Form Band all giving great performances, alongside solos from the three finalists from the Junior Young Musician of the Year earlier this term: Lucas, Emilia and the overall winner, Olivia.

There was a strong role for our student leaders across the performances. The show was compered by Year 13 students Lois and Will, and the acts included orchestras led and conducted by students, playing music arranged by students. We had a sneak preview of next week's Year 7-9 production of Grease - the musical, which is completely led by Sixth Form performing arts students - direction, choreography, musical direction, and organisation. The backstage crew - led by Megan from Year 13 - made sure that everything ran smoothly. And, of course, the 200+ strong Junior Choir were singing songs written by our youngest students, choreographed by Sixth Form leaders Oliver and Mair.

Audiences and performers alike were left feeling uplifted and festive - and singing the incredibly catchy Junior Choir songs all the way home!
