A level music recital

AS and A2 students amazed guests and fellow students in their musical recital organised by Mrs Phillips and Miss Burgess. Performances included a wide range of genres including: jazz piano, contemporary pop, a variety of flute genres, Latin jazz guitar and clarinet concerto. Students were accompanied by Doug Gould who helped students to create developed pieces. In attendance were Mr Todd and Mr Antram who were delighted by the music students’ hard work. Also in attendance were family, friends and external instrumental teachers. Miss Phillips was very proud after the performances saying, “I even tweeted straight after the performances to say how proud and emotional I was”.
