Summer Music Concert Hits The Right Note

One hundred musical stars dazzled an audience of parents and staff at CBA’s Music for a Summer’s Evening concert.

The showcase of talent included the steel pan band, the concert band, soloists and choirs. The evening was a culmination of the hard work put in by music students of all ages throughout the last year.
The audience of around 250 people even had a chance to join in when the Brass Ensemble played Tequila Sunrise.
From individual performances to ensembles, the evening offered a variety of skilled performances which brought the theatre to life.
Director Music Clive Wears said: "It was lovely to see so many parents there - the theatre was packed out. It was also lovely to see diverse musical groups ranging from string ensembles to the steel pan band.
"Many of the students taking part were from Key Stage Three so the future's looking bright with those students all progressing in the next few years."
Some of the highlights included Kyle Murrie singing The Beatles' hit Yesterday, Andile Chiwuta's vocal solo performance of You Raise Me Up and the saxophone solo by Josie Murrie.
Principal Andrew Campbell handed out certificates during the evening for those students who have recently passed music exams.
Year 10 student David Graham, who plays in the steel pan band, said: "I wanted to take part because I thought it would be an experience. You have to have good teamwork and listen to each other when you're playing so it sounds good. You also have to be confident in what you do."
Year 10 student Myles Peters, who plays in the steel pan band and plays tuba, added: "Taking part in the concert helps us to prepare for other concerts and it helps to improve confidence."
