As one of the most popular music events in our school calendar and following the success of last term’s Open Mic Night, we were delighted to host the much-anticipated Rock Concert: The Lockdown Sessions last weekend, and the virtual event exceeded expectations.
The evening began with a superb duet from Imogen and Sophie who sang ‘You Are the Reason’ by Calum Scott. Songs ranged from rock classics to noughties hit Sk8er Boi by Avril Lavigne and musical favourites from The Greatest Showman.
It was brilliant to see some group performances too which included a standout production of ‘Every Breath You Take’ and Paramore’s ‘Misery Business’.
Director of Music, Darren Everhart, commented "I would like to congratulate all the pupils who performed in our Rock Concert. To have taken the time and effort to record challenging solo performances from home shows remarkable commitment and resilience and I am incredibly impressed with their dedication. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the performances and I really liked the wide range of styles. Thank you to everyone who took part or who supported the pupils, and, in particular, to Mr Maybury for coordinating the whole project."
