Workshop Day and Concert
12 July 2016
To finish off a very successful year, Mrs Gifford and the School Band attended a Workshop Day at Valley Brass Centre in Haydock. Lyme Primary School also attended. Students were divided into groups and rehearsed eight pieces which were to be performed at the Town Hall. After lunch, all the groups came together and rehearsed one final time.
The evening concert was well attended by friends and family and the Mayor and Mayoress of St Helens were also there. Valley Brass performed four pieces first, including 'The Muppets' and 'Rule the World' and it was lovely to hear Alyssa Connelly playing with the main Band.
Then it was the School's turn. We were also joined by some students from Hope Academy and Senior Learners from Valley Brass. There were lots of performers on the stage!
The programme consisted of:
- Super Trouper
- My heart will go on
- Let's Twist Again
- Ob-La-Di Ob-Bla-Da
- A Groovy Kind of Love
- Chim Chimeree
- The Bare Necessities
Well done to everybody and well played!
