Children from across the seven Compass schools gave a sensational performance to their families, trustees and governors last night at our first Spring Concert, kindly hosted by Halley Academy. It was the first time that all of our seven schools have come together to perform, and we were treated to a variety of catchy numbers from the respective school choirs, as well as to some rousing whole-group performances in which all of the children came together to sing.
Children from Willow Dene School started the event off with a knee-tapping ‘jammin’ session live on stage. The South Rise Bateria band gave a mesmerising performance. Halstow’s orchestra showcased their musical talents with a rendition of the James Bond theme tune. For Alderwood choir it was the first time that many of the children had ever performed to a live audience and they did a sterling job with their performance of ‘Feed the World’. Deansfield choir demonstrated their skilful ability to harmonise which was most impressive. Horn Park treated us to a fantastic visual display with their fabulous performance of ‘Eye of the Tiger’ and Wingfield shone with their rendition of ‘Shake it Off’. The concert came to an end all too quickly, finishing with a pop medley performed together by all of the schools. The children were absolutely fantastic and are looking forward to the next concert. We would like to thank staff, parents, trustees and governors for their support for this event who ensured that the children performed to a packed hall!
