Musicians from Brooke Weston, Corby Business Academy and Kettering Science Academy marked the festive season with joint concerts, the first time ever that the three schools have collaborated on a musical production.
The two carol services took place on Tuesday 7th and Thursday 9th December at St Brendan’s Church Corby, and the Salvation Army Citadel in Kettering. Performers from all of the Academies, including the primary students from KSA, sang or played in the Partnership Concert Band and individuals from each school were selected to read passages.
A highlight was A Nutcracker Spectacular performed by the Partnership Concert Band as well as the choral arrangement, Carol of the Bells. Conor Judge started proceedings by singing the first verse solo of Once in Royal David’s City and the evening ended with everyone; parents, students and the Principals from each Academy joining in a rendition of O Come All Ye Faithful.
