Year 7 Recital Evening – what a brilliant concert!

Well done to the thirty Year 7 students who participated in the Recital Evening in the Paul Shuttleworth Drama Studio on Wednesday 11th February. There was a wide range of experience and ability on show, but they all had two things that any good musician needs – a confident approach to presenting themselves (at least on the outside!) and bags of musicality in the way that they performed. Thank you to all the peripatetic music teachers and Mr Williamson, who helped to prepare individual students, and to parents, grandparents and friends for attending and supporting so enthusiastically. There is lots of musical talent across the year group and I am looking forward to seeing how it grows in the coming months and years.
