An 11-16 Academy
Our summer musical celebration took place on the 7th July at All Saints Church.
The concert opened with a high energy medley of three songs from the musical 'Joseph' as a tribute to the fabulous full school production earlier in the year. In addition to the orchestra, there were also contributions from the brass ensemble, Orange Blues, the Samba band and 'Amplifier' composition group.
Highly polished solo performances came from Summer Amass, Courtney Chilvers, Hannah Allum and Jessica Rutherford all of whom have just left year 11. The evening was further enhanced by a mature and sensitive rendition of 'Count Your Blessings' performed by Courtney Debenham and Skye Lintott; a beautifully expressive performance by Ellie Ryan of 'Over the Rainbow' and the purity of tone of Charlotte Watson singing 'Lead Me Lord' by S.S. Wesley. In addition, the audience was also treated to the mellow and assured playing of Marty Gionis and a fantastic arrangement of 'Moon River'.
The magnificent surroundings of All Saints was a beautiful setting for a brilliant evening of music making. Well done to all those talented Stradbroke musicians who made the evening so special.
Mr J. Williams
Head of Music.
