During lunchtime on Red Nose Day a student concert took place raising £107.86 for Comic Relief. The turnout and atmosphere in the theatre were amazing, leaving very few seats left unoccupied.
The first of the three performances saw Gabriel Bush and Emanuele Savoca perform ‘Listen Up’ by Oasis. This was followed by Daniel Tofangsazan who, I quote, decided to ‘bring the comic to this relief’ and perform ‘Sitting, Waiting, Wishing’ by Jack Johnson whilst eating a ghost chilli pepper – one of the hottest chillies in the world. Fortunately, this did not affect his perfomance as he recited Jack Johnson’s hit, much like Gabriel and Emanuele with their performance, with great composure especially when considering the ‘heated’ circumstances. The atmosphere within the theatre continued to grow as the newly formed band ‘NoVum’, consisting of Luca Ellison, Ethan Singleton, James Kravos and Matt Gibbons, closed the show with their version of ‘Dammit’ by Blink 182.
This show was a huge success that embodied the spirit of St Peter’s School whilst displaying the range of talent within this facility. Both Lois Pretty and I would like to thank those who attended and contributed to what is a truly great cause.
