Chamber Choir @ BAE

The Chamber Choir were honoured to have been asked to perform at the naming ceremony for HMS Audacious at BAE on the 16th December.  With the Royal Marines as their backing band they gave a great performance of seasonal music as well as the the traditional Seafarer’s Hymn and National Anthem.Chamber Choir at BAE

Thank you!!!!!!

A huge thank you to all of the students and parents who helped with the bag-pack and music day. The ensembles were fantastic, delivering over  6 hours of continual music, and those who were on the tills and/or doors displayed great stamina (and, at times, self-control with fixed smiles!!!!!). We took £981 which, considering it has been a quiet Christmas at Booths so far, is an incredible amount.

THANK YOU!!!!!!

Help needed

If anyone is available at 4pm today at school (Year 10-13 students and/or parents), we are going to have to load the van with all the Wind Band equipment instead of tomorrow morning. Any help would be greatly welcomed!!!!

It’s Panto Time … (oh, no it’s not…)

Just a reminder that the brilliant 2016 UVHS Panto, The Three Little Pigs, is on Monday evening at The Coro.  It starts at 7pm and lasts about 45 minutes – entry is just £2 on the door (cabaret seating with bar facilities before and after).

Also a reminder to some of the Friends of UVHS Music that they volunteered to run the door on Monday and need to be at The Coro by 6.30pm.

HELP!!!!!!!!!!

We are in desperate need of mince pies and a few good raffle prizes for Tuesday  –  can you help?????  Only 2 packets of pies are currently in the office – we probably need 60-70 packets – although we do have 3 good raffle prizes already.

Also, only 6 adults have so far volunteered to bag-pack on Saturday 17th December (there will be a few Year 13s filling in where needed, but we must have a majority of parents), where we would hope to be able to make enough money to complete the fundraising for the Wind Band tour.  Please email Mr B a.s.a.p. on rbu@uvhs.uk to volunteer a time slot – we need at least 6 ‘bodies’ each slot
