September Music News 2018

Forthcoming events include:

'Lights, Camera, Music!' is the first concert on Wednesday 10 October at 7 p.m. - Friends booking for this opens on Monday 17 September at 12 p.m. and go on general release on Monday 24 September. Tickets are priced at Adults £5, Concessions £4, Friends £3. 

This opening performance will be a film music concert giving our bigger ensembles the chance to play through some exciting music from a number of legendary composers from this genre. Added to the excitement will be the bonus of having pupils dressing up as their favourite film character. For every Chewbacca and Disney Princess there will be a James Bond or Clark Kent! We are not looking for expensive fancy dress hire but home-made creations - or a mixture of both. If any parents know of anybody who specialises in film props please get in touch as we would like to decorate the Theatre.

The following bands will be entertaining you:

Symphonic Winds
Big Band I
Big Band II
Big Band III
Symphony Orchestra
Wind Band
Jazz Vocal
Molto Teso (our new Senior String group)
Sax Pistols
Funktion Band
