Year 7 Winter Showcases
AN ELECTRIC ATMOSPHERE filled the John Jenkins Hall this week when the entirety of year 7 performed to a packed audience in our two Winter Showcases. The progress that all students have made with the instruments that they began to learn at the very start of September was tangible. A number of individual awards were presented to those students who, in their teachers’ eyes, had made the most improvement, were worthy of being highly commended, or had shown an outstanding approach to learning their new instrument. They were heartily congratulated by Mr Cole.
Smaller group items were performed throughout both evenings, directed by the instrumental tutors, showcasing the talents of the different instrumental groups. There were even a selection of soloists who should be particularly proud of all they achieved. For the close of each concert, the whole wind band joined forces in order to perform pieces specifically arranged for the Year 7 Instrumental Programme Showcase, directed by Mr Elsom at the conductor’s podium. Many thanks go to all the parents who support this fantastic programme!
We look forward to welcoming you to our annual Carol Service which will take place at Croydon Minster on Monday 17 December, starting at 19:30.
