On Friday 23rd March 2018 we took 3 ensembles to perform as part of the Music For Youth Festival in the Newport Centre. Our Senior Vocal group were up first with a Daft Punk medley and Taize Stay Here and Keep watch:
We then had our Wind Band performing Simple Gifts and a Medley from Phantom of the Opera. Year 7 to year 13 students all working together.
To finish our set we had our Jazz group performing There will Never Be Another You with a trumpet feature from Alex in year 10 and Birdland, arranged by our own pianist Matt.
We had Fantastic feedback, as can be seen from the write ups we received, and all the pupils thoroughly enjoyed taking part.
In the evening many of our students who perform with Gwent Music Ensembles took part in the Newport Showcase concert. A few performers from our choirs were able to take part together with the rest of the Catholic Cluster primary schools in Newport.
It was a fantastic day of music making. Can’t wait to do it all again!
