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.
