The evening of Thursday 9th July 2015 saw 62 children involved in our latest variety show – all eager to show their friends and parents what they had been working on in their music lessons this year. 160 people packed the hall and were an excellent audience, showing their appreciation to everyone who performed.
Our steel band played some of their favourites and a few new pieces; Years 5, 6, 7 and 8 played “Clocks”, “Mambo”, “Roar” and “Sugar” respectively and we were also treated to duets by Matthew and Aiden from year 6, Ellie and Eleanor from year 8 as well as vocal solos by Ellie, Eleanor and Ellie.
Josh France and Ben Leadbitter were brave enough to give us piano solos; Rosie, Damien and Laurie battled it out on their guitars with “Duelling banjos” and we had a group of 17 SMS singers performing “Somewhere only we know”. The finale was band playing “Let it go” from Disney’s “Frozen” joined by the audience in a singalong – they raised the roof!
A big thank you to everyone who took part – you did yourselves and your parents proud! Well done!
