Swing Band Concert – Water Yeat


Poster for the concert is above. I am really sorry but I have had to reduce the band down to the Extended Combo due to the size of Water Yeat Hall.  Players need to be there at 7pm.

If you would like to go please ring for a ticket – audience members can bring their own refreshments (of any type!) as there are none available.

PS  –  FRIENDS  MEETING ON TUESDAY AT 6.30pm  –  all welcome

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all students/parents/families involved with music at UVHS.  I hope you all had a good Christmas and are well set for 2016.

A huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who performed and held buckets at Booths on 19th December – we raised £875 in the buckets during the 6.5 hours of performing  –  a fantastic effort on everybody’s part.

On Monday 22nd, the Chamber Choir and Sax Ensemble gave a fantastic afternoon concert at St Marys Hospice, and we handed over not only 100 mince pies and 4 bottles of sherry (kindly donated by Mr Miller and the Harrrell Lane Co-Op), but also the £536 raised in the collection following the Christmas Festival  –  which I hope everyone enjoyed.

Finally  –  the next Friends meeting will be on Tuesday 12th January at 6.30pm in the Meeting Room in A Block (old staffroom).  All are welcome to attend, with the main agenda item being the Marines concert in May  –  tickets will go on sale in February and there will be a ‘pre-sale day’ for parents to buy them.

Many thanks for all the support given in 2015 and here’s to a successful 2016.
