A jazz band, Indian drummers and a primary school choir were just a few of the stunning acts that students enjoyed when they went to the Royal Albert Hall for the School Proms. Nearly 30 music students travelled to London for the event comprising choirs and musicians from schools all over the country. The School Proms is staged annually in a three-day event with a different musical programme each evening.
Teacher Mr Tang said: ‘It was very eclectic and the students absolutely loved it. Each act was amazing and the quality seemed to step up with each successive performance. The first act was a collaboration of orchestra, popular music instruments, a rapper and a 700 piece choir. It was really intense and set the tone straight away.
'The students loved it, they felt so invigorated by everything, it literally was a case of seeing the first act and saying "this act is amazing." Then the next act would come on and be amazing as well! The ages of the performers ranged from primary up to Sixth Form and they came from all over the country. A Scottish folk band performed and their piece merged seamlessly with the next act of Indian drummers.There were two Sixth Formers from Lewisham, a jazz band from Market Harborough, a soul band and about 70 primary school children who gave a fabulous performance on that very famous stage.’
