Year 11 Students Perform Bizets Habanera

Staff and Students are treated to a Musical Extravaganza!
In preparation for their GCSE music ensemble performance, Year 11 students have been rehearsing Bizet's Habanera from the Opera Carmen. Arrangements of this piece, which have been published by the BBC's project '10 Pieces', have inspired students to play a variety of instruments including the piano, cello, trumpet, saxophone; bass guitar, violin and percussion.
Rehearsals have been taking place every week and students played their first live performance on 2nd November 2017 in front of a packed audience of supportive and enthusiastic staff. Feedback from this event has been invaluable in encouraging students to develop their performance skills and improve their confidence. The experience has enthused our Year 11 GCSE students to work on their next creative performance piece.
