Music Share Concert
Last evening our Academy hosted the fantastic Music Share Concert run by Lichfield Cathedral. Music Share began in 2003, using the skills of the cathedral choir. When renovation work occurred on the cathedral, the show was taken to onto the road, allowing audiences to be wowed by the talent on show.
As well as hosting the event, our students performed along with the very impressive pupils of St Mary’s CE (A) Primary School; Saint Nathaniel’s Academy and Summerbank Primary Academy.
Students arrived well before the 5pm start to run through last rehearsals, building on all the hard-work and commitment they have shown throughout the year so far. Under the guidance of Director Kathy Lamb, the students finished their final practice and readied themselves for the main performance.
Parents and guests arrived for 5pm before being blown away by a stunning performance. Kick starting with “Si si lanobana” and then moving into “Come ye sons of art”, the students excelled as they ran through their set list. Further songs included “Tony Chestnut”; “Water come a me eye”; “Fa fa fa (sad song)” and “Drunken Sailor” before finishing with a rousing rendition of “Weather with you.” The audience showed their appreciation with a standing ovation.
A parent of one of St Mary’s pupils said: “It was a fantastic evening. My son was in it. He loved every moment of it and it was entertaining for the parents.
Principal Mr Lowry added: “What a fantastic event. Bringing together four schools for one concert. Great community event led by our Co-operative Young Leaders.”
