GCSE performance concert

GCSE performance concert

Tuesday 1st March 2011 by C. Freeman

Students staged a superb musical concert for parents and staff recently. GCSE, BTEC and A Level students each had to do a live performance as part of their coursework in the show that lasted for an hour and a half.

The concert took place in the cosy atmosphere of the drama studio so the students were in close proximity to their audience, comprising around 40 parents and some staff members. There were 11 GCSE acts, two of which were ensemble performances, two BTEC solo and A Level recitals each lasting 15 minutes by Jonathan Lindsay on cello and pianist Jay Brown.

Head of Music, Mr Steve Duguid said: ‘This concert really displayed the talents of the students at their best; it was excellent. It was a really intimidating environment for students to perform in, to be so close in an intimate environment to people they know. You felt their fear and nerves but it was a really supportive environment.’
