Coastal Acad­e­mies Trust Musi­cal Medley

CAT200The sec­ond annual Coastal Acad­e­mies Trust Con­cert took place in the Win­ter Gar­dens on the 6th of Feb­ru­ary 2018. Stu­dents from every school in the multi acad­emy trust per­formed to a large, enthu­si­as­tic crowd, show­ing off all of the musi­cal abil­ity and tal­ent across the schools.

The show was opened in amaz­ing style by the chil­dren of Cliftonville Pri­mary School who sang in both Eng­lish and Span­ish as well as per­form­ing a song in sign lan­guage and fea­tur­ing an ter­rific solo per­for­mance of ‘Some­where Over The Rain­bow’ per­formed by one of the pupils.

This great start was fol­lowed by a wide range of per­for­mances from stu­dents of the four senior schools, with bands, choirs, musi­cal the­atre and even com­edy num­bers. Over the course of two hours of enter­tain­ing per­for­mances, musi­cians from King Ethel­bert, Harts­down, Royal Har­bour and Dane Court dis­played a huge range of tal­ent, reveal­ing the qual­ity of music being learned and per­formed across the group.

To com­plete the evening’s enter­tain­ment, all of the stu­dents joined together ‘en masse’ to per­form the Take That song ‘Never For­get’. This choral finale fea­tured the con­fi­dent voices of Cliftonville Pri­mary, a rock band from Harts­down Acad­emy and all the stu­dents who had taken part in the show.

This fan­tas­tic evening was a won­der­ful oppor­tu­nity for every­one in our schools’ com­mu­ni­ties to wit­ness the great progress being made in music across the Coastal Acad­e­mies Trust. The stan­dard of per­for­mance was indeed a huge step on from last year and I’m sure that the show in 2019 will be more impres­sive still!

Thanks and con­grat­u­la­tions to all involved.
