Wind & Swing Rehearsals Next Week

Monday’s Wind Band rehearsal (27th March) will be extended until 5.15pm as (due to the final rehearsal for A Night At The Musicals) there will be no rehearsal on the first Monday back after Easter – 17th April. Also, as we will be missing 2 rehearsals in May due to bank holidays, future rehearsals will be extended to 5pm.

The next 2 Swing Band rehearsals (24th & 31st March) will be extended to 4.45pm to prepare for the school show.

Recital Tomorrow – reminder

Just a reminder that Jess Hartley will be performing her A Level recital in the Main Hall tomorrow at 4pm – the last email said she was playing clarinet…. that should have read alto saxophone (just shows how versatile she is!!). All are welcome.

Swing Band – school show

Swing Band are performing at The Coro on Wednesday 19th and Thursday 20th April (7pm start) as part of our school show, A Night At The Musicals. It promises to be a fantastic show covering a wide range of musicals, old and new, that have graced Broadway and the West End. Swing Band will be opening the second half.

Letters will be out on Friday for players, but please come along to support the show as well as promoting it with friends, family & colleagues. Tickets are available through The Coro here: A Night at the Musicals – The Coro .

A Level Recital – next Thursday

We will be staging a public A Level recital next Thursday featuring Jess Hartley on clarinet. This will also be a recorded performance for the exam board. Everyone and anyone is welcome to attend – it will start just after 4pm and will last approximately 15 minutes (unless we need to re-record it).

I thoroughly recommend and yr12 Music students and potential A Level students to attend (so that they know what to expect).

Any Photos?

If anyone has any good photos of either the Friday and/or Saturday night’s performances with the Marines, please could you email them to me at

Many thanks.
