On Saturday, at 7.30pm, the Royal Marines are streaming the recording of this year’s Mountbatten Festival of Music on their Youtube channel. This was staged in February at the Royal Albert Hall and is a SPECTACULAR concert.
With a programme including Stevie Wonder, Two Steps From Hell, The Music Man Project UK and drummers from the Koninklijke Marine, it will be an amazing evening of musical entertainment for everyone. I really recommend that all UVHS music students watch it (it will remain on their channel for some time if you miss it) – especially the yr10 & yr12 students going down to Portsmouth on work experience next week!!!!
Tickets for the Summer Concert @ The Coro have now gone on sale via The Coro website. The concert starts at 7pm and will feature the Junior Band, Swing Band, String Ensemble, Choir and Wind Band (prior to the concert tour to France). We will also be saying farewell to our brilliant yr13s.
Please ‘encourage’ as many family/friends/colleagues to come along as you can.
After several Mondays off, Wind Band rehearsals are back from tomorrow every week, from 3.30-5.15pm as we start the big push towards the Summer Concert and tour. Please could yr7-10 and yr12 students make sure they attend all rehearsals if at all possible. Yr11 & yr13 – hopefully they can make most rehearsals but I totally understand the pressures, especially if they have Tuesday morning exams: good luck to everyone!
It is imperative that we have FULL attendance at all lunchtime rehearsals this week as the Chamber Concert is on Friday evening (Swing Band is cancelled on Friday due to the concert). School Choir, String Group, Senior Flute Choir, Sax Ensemble, Clarinet Choir & Brass Ensemble.
